Join St. Joseph High School Music Ministry!
We sing/play from the balcony during school Mass to help lead the congregation downstairs.  The only requirements are that you want to sing and that you show up and participate with a positive attitude.  We meet at 7:45am on Mass mornings in the church balcony to practice (usually there are donuts!).  Since you arrive before actual class time this counts as service hours (15 minutes per Mass, IF you’re on time!) You can get FOUR HOURS during the course of the year for singing with us!

Member Selection Procedure

The National Honor Society is an organization whose purpose is to “create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.”  (NHS Handbook, 18th ed., 2015)  To this end, the St. Joseph Central Catholic High School chapter of the NHS inducts students each fall into membership in our chapter.

Students will be considered eligible candidates for induction in their junior or senior year if they have been a St. Joe student for at least one year, and have a 3.5 cumulative GPA for all of their high school career.  Additionally, students who were previously inducted into the NHS at another school will be automatically accepted into the St. Joe chapter upon presentation of evidence of induction into their former school’s chapter.

In September of each academic year, students who meet these criteria will be asked to complete a Candidate Application Form to provide information about their participation and leadership in service activities, school clubs, sports teams, and any extracurricular activities that might demonstrate their qualities of scholarship, character, leadership and service to others.

In addition to the Candidate Information Form, teachers at St. Joe will be asked to complete Faculty Input Forms regarding these students’ qualifications.  Teacher comments may include examples of behaviors or events that stand out as reasons the student should be considered for induction, as well as any reasons that they should not.  Teachers should consider the student’s completion of service hours, disciplinary events, and violations of the school’s honor policy, as well as anecdotal evidence of the student’s character.

A committee of 5 teachers, excluding the NHS sponsor and administrative staff, and approved by the principal each year, will then review the candidate and faculty forms, and will vote on each student’s acceptance into the St. Joe Chapter of the NHS.  Any student receiving three or more votes will be invited to become members of our chapter.

Letters will then be sent out to all candidates and their parents informing them of the committee decisions.  Those who have been selected will be notified of the date and time of our induction ceremony, with an invitation to parents to attend.  Students who do not receive enough votes will also be notified, in writing, with an brief explanation of the areas in which the student failed to meet the criteria.  The induction ceremony will take place in October of each school year.

Members meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month in Mrs. McCarty’s room. Members will participate in a variety of service projects for the school and community.
