National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society

National Honor Society (NHS, grades 10-12) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS, grades 7-9)  are organizations designed to encourage the 5 tenants of Character, Citizenship, Scholarship, Leadership and Service.  Students with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 and 1 semester attendance at Peyton will receive an application in August and January.  To achieve full membership status each student needs to complete the community service requirements: 25 hours for NHS and 15 hours for NJHS. Community service is not limited to NHS/NJHS activities.   Pins and bars are awarded at the Academic Awards each spring.


2016 Penny and Toy Drives

During the Penny Drive, NHS and NJHS collected $80 for local families in need. The Food Pantry received 8 large black bags of toys from the Toy Drive.  They were distributed to eastern Colorado families in time for Christmas.


In 2015-2016, NHS and NJHS members donated 3,296 community service hours!
