Sixth-Graders Learn About Middle School

Members of the National Junior Honor Society at Edmund W. Miles Middle School came to Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School to talk to each sixth-grade class on Oct. 14. The members explained what NJHS is — character, scholarship, leadership, service and citizenship — how to become part of it, and what its members do.   
The NJHS students also talked to Park Avenue students about how their grades and behavior in sixth-grade decide what students are chosen for the honor society.

NJHS members also talked to sixth-graders about the expectations of middle school and answered questions. After reflecting about the visit, one sixth-grade student said, “I learned that I have to try hard now.”
The event was coordinated by National Junior Honor Society advisor Carlee Wallenstein and Park Avenue school counselor Kim Balducci.
