ART CLUB


Students will work on personal arts and crafts projects as well as group projects. Students will be asked to choose projects that they think will be fun as well as creative. Mediums will depend on students’ desires and on the availability of materials needed. Parents will be notified of any extra supplies needed. The art club affords members the opportunity to work on special projects which serve to beautify the school. “Kids making their school beautiful for kids” is an essential part of the club’s philosophy. The emphasis of the art club is on developing individual creativity in each artist.

NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY

Sponsor:
Tom Kalanquin
tkalanquin@bloomfield.org
248.341.6203

Eighth-grade students who are interested in becoming members of the National Junior Honor Society will fulfill the requirements listed below.

  • A student’s grade-point average is one fact in determining membership. A cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or better must be achieved this school year.
  • Good citizenship represents both responsibility and sound character. You must earn a “1" or “2" for your behavior marks for all classes. A “3" or a “4" for behavior in any class throughout your eighth-grade year will make you ineligible to participate in the NJHS.
  • Leadership is a component of membership in the National Junior Honor Society. By the Tuesday following Memorial Day, you are to write an essay which explains the ways in which you have exhibited leadership this school year. Please turn in the essay to Mr. Kalanquin.
  • ‘Service as Action’ is a focal point of membership. Students will complete two service as action experiences in the eighth grade, one to meet the grade-level requirement and a second to fulfill the requirement for NJHS Induction. A thoughtful and well-written reflection of the service as action experience will need to be completed using the school’s online form.

Service Requirement for NJHS
Taking action to make our world a better place is a characteristic that we value at our school. Service (formerly known as community service) is one form of action. We define service as action that has a reach beyond the classroom with the purpose of making change. We hope that through service as action experiences in the classroom, throughout the school and within the community, our students will enhance important skills of collaboration, perseverance, initiative, understanding, and engagement. NJHS is following the district shift from logging service hours to acquiring and reflecting on service experiences and learning outcomes for students.

Changes to NJHS Service Expectations
In previous years, NJHS candidates in Bloomfield Hills Schools have completed 20 hours of community service to fulfill the service requirement for induction; beginning in 2017/2018, there is no service hour requirement. The new expectation requirement requires students to complete two service experiences in 8th grade, one to meet the grade-level requirement for Service as Action, and a second to fulfill the requirement for NJHS Induction. The Service as Action experience will be facilitated by the classroom teacher in connection to an IB unit of study and the teacher will collect the completed reflection in class. The NJHS service experience and reflection will be completed by students independently.

In the past, students have completed a paper-copy form to verify their accumulated hours. This year, students will now be able to complete their Service as Action reflection using the school's online form. This will foster improved communication between students and each school regarding the high-quality Service as Action experiences in which students are participating.
