The health and safety of our students is our number one priority. Therefore, service hours for the spring semester (May 2020) do not need to be formallly submitted due to COVID-19. Members are highly encouraged to keep a personal record of any community service performed during this semester for college applications and scholarship purposes.
Additionally, any student who did not turn in fundraising money prior to Spring Break must submit either their cash envelope or a check (made out to SFHS NHS) for $81. This money is crucial for us to be able to provide students with all the benefits of their membership at a severely reduced personal cost.
