NHS Celebrates Read Across America

Members of the National Honor Society visited the District’s three elementary schools to help them celebrate Read Across America on Friday, March 2. The event is held each year to celebrate reading and is traditionally held on Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  NHS members visited several classrooms to talk with the younger students and to read stories to them.  The project was coordinated by National Honor Society members and librarians in all the buildings.  Students of all ages enjoyed the special day!


NHS Students Meet the College Freshman

National Honor Society alumni from the class of 2010 returned to Garden Spot on Dec. 22 to meet with current NHS members.  The recent graduates participated the Meet the College Freshmen program, and shared advice on surviving and coping with the first semester of college.  They offered insight into how to select classes, how to cope with roommates, how to get involved with clubs, and how to prepare now for college life. They also discussed which classes and experiences at Garden Spot have helped them in college.   Current NHS members had a chance to ask questions and to socialize with the returning members.  The graduates who participated attend a variety of colleges such as Penn State, Temple, West Chester, Messiah, and Syracruse.

Members of National Honor Society Deck the Halls of GSHS

Students, faculty, staff, and visitors to Garden Spot High School in December are greeted with seasonal greetings and drawings on doors and windows.

Members of the National Honor Society used their artistic talents to “deck the halls” of the school.  The Deck the Halls project has been a long-standing tradition at the school, and NHS members enjoy spreading holiday spirit with everyone in the school.
