Students are selected for Membership in our school’s chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) based on grades earned as well as the Satisfactory/Outstanding received on Lifelong Learning Skills, and attendance.

Membership elects officers for President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary.

Our 4 Pilars:
Students who maintain straight A’s, A/B Honor Roll (in all subject areas) and all Satisfactory (S) and/or Outstanding (O) on every quarterly report card. Also, members who have maintained less than 9 absences and 3 tardies during each marking period (9 weeks).
Students demonstrate positive qualities: high standards of honesty and reliability, cooperative and supportive disposition, courtesy and respect for others. Thus, responsibility is consistently demonstrated in school, at home, and in the community. These skills are reflected on a student's report card under Lifelong Learning Skills, but are not limited to, report cards. Members are given one week to give a copy of their report card to a Longleaf NEHS Advisor every 9 weeks. Members must attend all meetings and activities unless previously discussed with an advisor. All meetings dates are scheduled and attached.
Students who choose activities on behalf of others (not including immediate family members) for no compensation (monetary or other) has been given. Service also includes students helping the teacher or peers in their classrooms, during activity, and at lunch.
Students are viewed as resourceful, good problem solvers, involved in and promoters of school activities, idea contributors, dependable, and are organized and organizers. Leaders show exemplary behavior and conduct at all times. Students actively participate in all NEHS meetings and activities.
