National Honor Society

Service Hours:

Each NHS member is required to have 10 NHS volunteer hours each school year. These hours MUST be earned at NHS sponsored events. Each member must log on to x2vol and add NHS to log their hours. NHS hours will then be submitted to Ms. Newton for approval. Hours used for other clubs do not count; however the hours do count toward service learning cords and the civic seal at graduation. In addition, each member must contribute toward the chapter service project. When the project is announced, the required hours will be as well.

I encourage members to research worthy causes and get other members together to make a difference in our community! If you would like to organize an event, please contact Ms. Buchkowski - Newton or Ms. Carfang. With such a large group of members after induction, the NHS chapter at West Potomac has the ability to positively impact our school community and community at large by helping and/or donating what is needed to help others.
