On Sunday, May, 5th , Visitation Academy’s Pope Francis Chapter of the NJHS participated in the Family Promise Hike for Hope to help the homeless of Bergen County. Despite the cold and rain our students hiked three miles and contributed well over $1,000.00. A special thank you to Eamonn Twomey who contributed the highest donation.
Our students, truly lived by the quote. “When life gives you a rainy day, play in the puddles”
POPE FRANCIS CHAPTER OF THE NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY
Members of Visitation Academy Pope France National Junior Honor Society
are dedicated to the following five pillars:
Students must have an A in all subjects to be invited to join the Honor Society and
must maintain an A in all subjects to remain a member in good standing
This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community,
done without compensation.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea
contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community
activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of
honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and
maintains a clean disciplinary record.
The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic
engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects the U.S. form
of government; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal
levels; and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility in activities
such as scouting, community organizations, or school clubs.
New members are chosen in the fall based on the previous year’s academic
record. The induction ceremony typically takes place in during Catholic Schools
Week. Members meet monthly, and volunteer at a variety of Visitation Academy
and community events.
