National Elementary Honor Society
The Dyer Elementary Chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS), founded in 2019, is a school based program recognizing outstanding elementary students in grades fourth and fifth. NEHS members are engaged in the meaningful development of leadership skills and a personal understanding of the value of service. However, more than just an honor roll, NEHS identifies high-achieving students who have an understanding of what it means to be a responsible student and citizen in our world today. The selection committee’s process begins following the Spring semester of a student’s third grade year, and is based upon scholarship, responsibility, leadership and service both at school and in the community. A formal induction ceremony for selected members is held in May and each of those students then serve as NEHS members during his/her fourth and fifth grade school year.
