PHS NHS communications take place mainly through e-mail and

the Palisade HS NHS site which is available only to PHS NHS students.

Process for getting into NHS:

It is that time again for National Honor Society Inductions.  If you are a Freshmen through Senior who has a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and enjoy serving others, join Mr. Kennedy and Mrs. Scroggins Tuesday, March 14th right after Academic Mentoring in Room 146B.  Applications will be due on Wednesday, March 15th.

  1. Students who believe they will have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above must pick up the application paperwork, complete, and return it by Wednesday, March 15th to Mr. Kennedy [146B] or Mrs. Scroggins [Library].  We will have a meeting with potential members on Tuesday, Mar. 14, 2023 in Room 146B right after Academic Mentoring.   The application paperwork can be obtained from the link above or from Mr. Kennedy [146B] or Mrs. Scroggins [Library].
  2. Scholarship:  As soon as Quarter 3 grades have been turned in, a list of all students at the school who have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above is retrieved.  This will be matched against those applying.
  3. Character, Leadership, and Service:
    1. Applying students’ names are put into a form that goes out to all staff members: certified and classified.  The form asks the staff to rate any students they recognize from 0 to 4 on Character, Leadership, and Service.  We recommend students let teachers and staff know they are applying and would appreciate them filling out the form.
    2. All the information is then compiled.  Students must have at least 7 nominations, and a total average of 9.6 with at least a 3.0 average in each of the three categories. 
    3. The PHS NHS Faculty Council (one teacher from each department and the two NHS Advisers) looks over and approves the list.
  4. Those that have met requirements receive invitations to their Induction Ceremony.
