Hello fellow students of Sacred Heart Grade School,

To be a part of the National Junior Honor Society is a great honor. Your goal as a student should be to work hard to become a part of the NJHS. This year the NJHS had a rough year, but we did achieve some things. The NJHS had trivia for grades 1st –8th and for reading across America Day, we read to UPK- 4th grade. This year we wanted to be the best NJHS we could be and we wanted to improve last year’s NJHS. We had many struggles, but I think our greatest achievement is this newsletter. It informs the school of the NJHS and all the events that would happen. So as the 8th graders leave Sacred Heart and the NJHS, I hope the new NJHS will be better than ever. I hope you continue the tradition of this newsletter. Let the school know who the NJHS is and never forget to improve on your service, scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and character. Those are the qualities the NJHS needs and strive to improve those qualities. The 8th graders of the NJHS will miss Sacred Heart greatly.

Stay Safe and Have a great summer!!

8th Grade Day!!
