The National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) is a student organization designed to recognize outstanding elementary students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship and responsibility. Chapters of NEHS work to develop leadership and promote service to the school and community for their members. NEHS is a program of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) in cooperation with the National Association of Elementary School Principals(NAESP). NASSP-the preeminent organization and national voice for middle level and high school leaders-also administers the National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS), the nation’s oldest and largest student recognition programs for schools; and the National Association of Student Councils (NASC), which promotes and provides leadership development opportunities to prepare and empower students to serve their schools and communities.
How Chapters Operate
Local chapters of the National Elementary Honor Society are directed by two sets of documents: The National Constitution and the local chapter bylaws. The NEHS National Constitution provides the national guidelines for all chapters. The day-to-day administration of the Society is undertaken by the staff of the national office located at 1904 Association Drive, Reston, VA 20191-1537; PH: 866-599-6347; FAX: 703-476-5432; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; Web site: www.nehs.org.
All chapters must adopt and abide by the provisions of the National Constitution, per their chartering agreement with the national organization. The NEHS National Handbook, available from the NEHS sales office, elaborates on the items found in the Constitution—including an outline for local bylaws—and provides guidance for advisers in applying the Constitution to their work with their chapters.
