National Junior Honor Society

  • I am the 2022-2023 sponsor of NJHS. 8th grade students who are currently members, please remember to check our Canvas page for any updates and meeting information. 

    Current 7th graders and parents: If you are interested in joining next year, please be aware that membership and admission is based on academics and behavior in school. Applications will be posted in the 4th quarter. Below are admission requirements: 

    a. To be eligible for membership, the candidate must be a student at Hillcrest Middle school during first semester seventh grade.
    b. Many students, including students of military parents, are required to move with parents or guardians who have transferred in their work. The present school principal should seek a recommendation from the previous school principal pursuant to the candidate’s selection. Based on the recommendation of the previous principal, the Faculty Council may waive the semester regulation.
    c. Candidates must have a GPA of at least 3.75 on a 4.0 scale (average 1 B per quarter). Any grade of a “C” given in any class taken will disqualify the candidate.
    d. The following will immediately disqualify a candidate:
    1. Any citizenship grade other than an E or S in any class taken.
    2. More than one detention for the entire school year.
    3. Any office referrals or suspensions.
    e. Upon meeting the grade level, attendance, and GPA standard requirements, candidates shall then be evaluated on the basis of service, leadership,
    citizenship, and character via the NJHS Application Form, Recommendation Forms and Faculty Evaluation Form.

Board Games Club

  • The Board Games club is a group that meets after school to play lots of fun games. Some students choose to play board and card games while others are participating in a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. New members are always welcome! We meet on Tuesdays from 3pm to 4pm in room 504. Make sure that you have a ride to pick you up after it is over at 4pm. Bussing is not provided. 

American Sign Language Club

  • The ASL club is a group that meets with the goal of teaching students in the school about American Sign Language and how being able to speak it can benefit others - with or without disabilities. Anyone is allowed to come. We always love new members! We meet Mondays after school in room 504 from 3:00-4:10! Make sure that you have a ride to pick you up after it is over. Bussing is not provided.
