    NHS Point System Overview 2020-2021

    NHS Point Form 2020-2021


    Pre-Approval Form for Non-NHS Event - The pre-approval system is now active for the 2020-2021 school year.  Please email all pre-approval requests to our Service VP at serviceahs@gmail.com!  Please read over the rules on the document.


    **ATTENTION** (This following email was sent on Nov. 5th to all NHS members.)

    We've had a few students stop by our classrooms to let us know that they have not received a response from the NHS Service gmail account after sending in pre-approval emails.  After a little digging, we've discovered that if you're using your Humble ISD emails to send the requests, the emails are not actually being sent out.  Your Humble ISD email accounts have limitations set so that you do not send or receive email from "out of district" email accounts.  Even though it looks like the email sent on your end, we are not receiving them in our serviceahs@gmail.com account.
    We've reached out to the district technology department to see what we can do about this issue.  In the meantime, please use a personal email account to send in your service pre-approval requests.  You are also welcome to come by our classrooms with a hard copy of the pre-approval form in order to get a signature.  We also keep hard copies of the pre-approval form in our classrooms.
    UPDATE: There is no way around the filters set on your Humble ISD accounts.  Please continue to use your personal email when submitting service requests to serviceahs@gmail.com.  If you ONLY have an Humble ISD email, please either email your pre-approval requests to Ms. Williams and Ms. Spence directly OR spot by our classrooms to get a physical copy of the pre-approval form.




    According to our Bylaws (Appendix B, Article 6), specific deadlines for service hours will be set at the beginning of the school year.  Please see the tables below in order to be aware of the point deadlines for this school year.  Except for early release dates, all point forms are due by 3:15 p.m. on the dates listed below.

    Failure to maintain the minimum service points required at each point check will result in probation.  Please see the probation overview for more details.  If you encounter an error in the points online: First, you should check your own records against what is online. Second, you should contact the NHS Secretary and Chapter Advisers.


    **Any late point forms submitted after the point check deadline do not count toward the member's total points or events.**
    **Events / service hours completed must be submitted during the SAME nine weeks that service was completed.  Any events / service hours turned in at a later nine weeks time period will not count.  (Example: You forgot to add to your point form that you volunteered at the Jesse Jones trail clean up in September, so you add it to your November point form.  The September service date was from the first nine weeks, so the hours should have been submitted by the first point deadline: Friday, Oct. 20th.  The points would not count during the 2nd nine weeks time frame.)
    **Note - If you have a recurring event (repeated dates for event within a nine weeks), you must complete a NEW pre-approval form at the start of a new nine weeks.  Make sure to list the dates that this event occurs on your pre-approval form!  This must be attached EACH nine weeks to your point form.
