(KagES) — Kagman Elementary School held its induction ceremony for the National Elementary Honor Society on May 31, 2021 at Laolao Bay & Golf Resort’s The Grill Restaurant. Ten students were inducted into the school’s chapter.
To be eligible for membership, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.6 or higher. Additionally, candidates must meet high standards of responsibility, service, and leadership.
Leadership is based on the student’s participation in community or school activities or election to an office. To meet the service requirement, the student must have been active in service projects in the school and community.
Students are reviewed by a faculty council appointed by the principal.
As members of NEHS, these students will now engage in a number of chapter service projects.
Dr. Ignacia T. Demapan, principal of Kagman Elementary School, in her congratulatory remarks commended the students for achieving NEHS membership. She emphasized that their membership is more than an honor. It is an ongoing responsibility and obligation to continue demonstrating these outstanding qualities that resulted in their NEHS selection, she added.
She also acknowledged the parents for providing support to their students to help them develop leadership, cultivate a love of giving back, and prepare for the next phase in their academic journey and beyond.
Dr. Demapan congratulated everyone, including the NEHS advisors, the NEHS Faculty Council, the teachers and staff of Kagman Elementary School, and thanked them for their dedication, commitment, and partnership.
