Today I would like to take you on a journey to the future. Where your kids -- they are the business men and women, they are the teachers, the doctors, the public speakers, they are the leaders of the world. 
 
The NEHS consists of a group of students who demonstrate outstanding academic and Islamic studies in addition to demonstrating personal responsibility. These students who are guided under an advisor, participate in leadership tasks and build skills that will be recognized in the future.
 
The National Elementary Honor  Society (or NEHS) chapter started at Al-Madinah School last year. It was brought to us for one sole purpose -- to help our children become leaders of tomorrow. Students in the NEHS has an opportunity to stand out among their peers, to push us more towards greatness, to enable their minds to grow further and put their hands to work.  
 
What do we do?
 
Over the last year with 49 students in grades 3-5,  participated in countless community service projects. They started right here at Madinah and was able to stretch further and further to other countries. 
 
  • We were fortunate to be able to collaborate with Baitul Jamat, Muslim Sisters of Staten Island, Muslims Giving Back, and Walgreen.
  • We created hygiene bags
  • Gathered winter gears, pantry items, raised money.
  • We made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the homeless. 
  • Raised awareness for children in poverty by selling red noses from Walgreens.
 
How will this benefit your child?
 
The NEHS won awards from reputable masjids and organizations
for youth leadership and generous donations. 
Students are able to network with popular and
respected foundations, organizations, non profits and also masajids around NYC.
Our students have built skills that enable us to stand up for themselves,
stand up for our student body and most importantly, stand up for our fellow Muslims
Respected parents, the NEHS is something you should want your kids to be apart of.
