Fox Ridge National Junior Honor Society 2020-2021
What is NJHS? What do we do?
National Junior Honor Society of Fox Ridge Middle School is the local chapter of a national organization that recognizes and encourages academic achievement while developing important characteristics such as leadership, community service and stewardship of our school. NJHS works both with the school and the community to help people in need. During our virtual meetings, we discuss and work on current and upcoming projects. Some of the projects we have conducted include food drives, collecting winter coats, crafts for various organizations, and letter writing campaigns. We want your student's input on how you want this chapter to serve our school and our community in this very unique year.
