Common Reader Suggestions for 2020-2021
It is not too early to recommend texts for next year's Common Reader. What books did you or your students read over the summer that made you think, moved you, filled you with wonder?
The official National English Honor Society brand store, Shop NEHS, offers over a dozen official NEHS apparel and accessory items. From tees to hoodies, hats to banners, you can represent NEHS in style.
Deadlines Approaching
Deadlines for both Classroom Library Grants and the Intellectual Freedom Challenge are approaching. All submissions for either must be received no later than October 7, 2019.
Principal Information Needed in NEHS Connect
A reminder that the names and email addresses of principals should be added to NEHS Connect as soon as possible. This additional data will enhance our ability to communicate with school leaders about the outstanding work being done by NEHS chapters. The Central Offices is adding principal information for those who made the request.
Sharing Chapter News
NEHS chapter members are doing amazing work within their schools and communities. We encourage you to share short articles and pictures of the projects in which your members are engaged with the rest of the Society. Consider establishing a "Communications Officer" or asking another of your NEHS student leaders to write a blog highlighting the impact and success of their efforts; add some pictures to enhance the blog and send it to Let's show our pride in NEHS!
