National Honor Society

The Ropes Eagle Chapter of the National Honor Society has been part of Ropes High School for many years. The objective of NHS is to encourage positive involvement at school and to recognize four qualities in students—scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Those sophomores, juniors, and seniors who meet the required grade average of 3.75 are then eligible to be evaluated by their teachers and sponsors of various school organizations to make sure they possess the desired NHS qualities. This evaluation process takes place during the first part of the second semester. A five-member faculty council officially appointed by the principal makes the final decision concerning new members.

The National Honor Society is made up of leaders. These students often go beyond their usual busy schedules in order to participate in other school, work, or community activities or simply to serve as examples to others on a daily basis. They are willing to help teachers and fellow students. New NHS members are recognized with tokens of membership at a special induction ceremony. This recognition is quite an accomplishment since it highlights the fact that these students have had academic and personal success. Members are eligible to use NHS on scholarship applications as graduating seniors, and they receive the official NHS insignia on their diplomas. The honor of wearing a stole with the NHS insignia at graduation shows the community proof of their outstanding high school accomplishments.

After the appointment of the faculty council by the principal and the calculation of cumulative GPAs by the counselor, the process for new inductees will begin. The following guidelines for selection of members at Ropes follow the guidelines set out in the national constitution and handbook of the National Honor Society.

  1. To be eligible for membership, the candidate must be a sophomore, junior, or senior. (Freshmen are not eligible.)
  2. Candidates must have been in attendance at Ropes High School the equivalent of one semester.
  3. Candidates must have a cumulative scholastic average of at least 3.75 on the 4.0 scale as obtained from the counselor. (Not all course grades are included in the average, such as athletics, band, etc.)
  4. Candidates are evaluated by a five-member faculty council (which does not include the principal or NHS sponsor) on the basis of service, leadership, and character in the following manner:
    a) Individual faculty members comment only on students they have had in class or in an organization.
    b) Candidates are ranked in the areas of service, leadership, and character using the 1-4 number system.
    4 – HIGH/outstanding
    3 – good
    2 – below average
    1 – LOW/poor
    c) An average score of 3.7 is recommended by the faculty council. The lowest teacher evaluation score for each student will be dropped before averaging.
    d) The Student Activity Information Form, along with other information about each candidate, may be reviewed by the faculty council if the need arises.
    e) The faculty council reserves the right to make final decisions on membership of candidates regardless of the score.
  5. Members may be evaluated at any time as a group or individually to make sure they are meeting NHS standards.

Ropes Eagles added an event.

Red Ribbon Week serves as a commitment to raise awareness of the importance of being drug free. Its purpose is to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. During the week of October 23-27th, we encourage students to dress up to show their pride and support of being DRUG FREE!

Monday - Red Ribbon Day (wear red)
Tuesday - Think twice about doing drugs (twin day)
Wednesday - Be a hero and just say NO (dress like a super hero)
Thursday - Stick it to drugs (duct tape day - make a costume or accessory out of duct tape)
Friday - Black out drugs (wear black - this is our black-out pep rally day)


POSTER CONTEST
In conjunction with Red Ribbon Week we are also offering a poster contest.

Here is how it works:

1. Poster contest is open to students in grades PK-12th
2. Posters must address this year’s theme:
"My Future Is Bright; No Drugs in Sight.”
3. Poster must be 12” x 18” in size (this is smaller than poster board size)
4. Student’s name and grade must be included on the back of the poster
5. Students must produce artwork on their own.
6. Posters will be judged on the quality of artwork, how well the artwork fits the theme, originality, neatness and use of space.
7. Posters will be judged by the Ropes Secondary Art Club.
8. A winner will be chosen from PK & K, 1st & 2nd, 3rd - 5th, Junior High, and High School.
9. Winners will be announced in the Black-out pep rally on October 27th.
10. Posters are due to the front office on or before 8:00 am October 23rd

Spur Football Game
The Spur stadium is unique. Please be aware that you may need to bring your own seating as their stadium is multi-levels of concrete. Also we sit on the same side as Spur, usually on the left side of the stadium as you are facing the field. Just some information that you might find useful for tonight. Go Eagles, Beat Spur!!!
