    Welcome to the Canyon Springs NEHS Chapter!
    We are so excited to spend the year working on community service projects with you! The National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) is a school based program recognizing outstanding elementary students in grades fifth through six and engaging them in the meaningful development of leadership skills and a personal understanding of the value of service. More than just an honor roll, NEHS gives each school member a means of identifying high-achieving students who have an understanding of what it means to be a responsible student and citizen in our world today.

    Pillars of Membership


    • Scholarship
      Students must first meet this criterion to become candidates for membership. NEHS national policy requires that each chapter set a cumulative GPA as their Scholarship criteria.

      Canyon Springs NEHS minimum GPA is 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

    • Service
      This involves voluntary contributions made by a student and done without compensation. Chapters can require evidence of service to either the school, the community or both. Each chapter sets its own requirements for this criterion.

    • Leadership
      Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others. Chapters can require evidence of leadership from within school or the community or both. Each chapter sets its own requirements for this criterion.

    • Character
      The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others. A chapter’s faculty council may review or consider disciplinary records when evaluating this criterion.

    • Citizenship
      In general, the student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; and respects democracy. Each chapter sets its own requirements for this criterion.
