National Elementary Honor Society
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.
Students who graduate with honors are qualified for scholarships, awards and automatically becomes inducted in upper grades Honor Society (while maintaining eligibility).
Winter Warmth Drive
Winter has already dawned upon us and as we know, it is necessary for us to cover up. However, not everyone is fortunate enough to have these gears, so as part of our annual contribution to the needy of NYC - We are commencing our collection of winter gear for the women, men and children of NYC - not limited to the homeless. This project is in collaboration with Muslim Sisters of Staten Island.
