Ms Grunt's Class Resources: NAHS
Penn Wood High School
What is the National Art Honor Society (NAHS)?
We are a group of art students who are part of a national organization with chapters in schools all over the country. The sponsors in our school are our art teachers, Ms. Grunt and Mr. Sorvari.
Requirements to be a member:
-be enrolled in an art class fall and/or spring semester
-Maintain a B average or above in art
- Attend meetings regularly
- $4 membership fee
- love art, working hard, community service and having fun!
Requirements to be formally inducted (Induction takes place in March):
-Complete 5 hours of art-related community service at least two weeks before the Induction Ceremony.
- Petition your fellow-members by presenting your contributions to the organization; the group then votes for you to be inducted if you show that you have been an active, contributing member with good attendance. Please be aware that if you have multiple commitments after school we would still be happy for you to join us, but we cannot promise you will be formally inducted as an official member.
What we do:
Meet on Thursdays at 2:30. Meetings usually run until 3:30pm. There are a number of extra meetings around Art Show time in May and around other major events.
Vote for our officers who will take on additional responsibilities to ensure the group functions at its best. Officer positions are: President, Secretary and Treasurer. Officers must have the ability to be present at all meetings.
