National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)
Each spring Immanuel will recognize 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who have met the NJHS guidelines. Once initiated in NJHS, students will be expected to continue their efforts in the four key areas to remain members of NJHS at Immanuel Lutheran School. The guidelines are taken from the recommendations of NJHS.

Leadership - Expected to take opportunities to lead in curricular and where possible extra-curricular activities.
Service - Expected to volunteer 5 hours of service at school, community, and/or church. (This is not parent volunteer hours.)
