Frink Honor Society
Sixth, seventh, and eighth graders are eligible for membership in the Frink Honor Society. A student must meet scholarship and conduct requirements to become and remain a member of this society.
To be admitted or to remain a Frink Honor Society member the student must have a current year average of at least a 90 in the four core (Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science) classes and no less than a 70 in Directed Studies classes. There is NO rounding. Students who do not maintain the scholastic requirements will receive a warning letter and be placed on probation for nine weeks. Any default in grades thereafter will result in membership termination for that school year.
Satisfactory conduct is required to become and remain a Frink Honor Society member. A student may not be eligible for membership or be subject to dismissal if his/her conduct is not satisfactory. That will be determined by teacher recommendation or office referrals. Membersí conduct will be reviewed each grading period. Members will receive one warning per year for conduct deemed inappropriate. A second infraction in conduct will warrant dismissal.
Those students who are eligible for membership will be recognized at a Tap-In Assembly during the school day on February 16. A $10 membership fee must be paid in order to become a member. Members will be officially inducted at the Honor Society Banquet on the evening of March 13 at Kings Restaurant. New members will receive their banquet ticket free and be able to purchase a limit of two additional tickets. Members who were inducted in previous years are also eligible to attend the banquet, but must purchase a ticket, unless they sell 2 boxes of candy. A list of current members in good standing will be posted outside the media center after each grading period.
Sixth, seventh, and eighth graders are eligible for nomination for the Student Council. Students will be nominated in their homeroom class and voted to serve on the Student Council by their peers. Students must be good role models, have good grades, and be willing to make a difference at Frink. Students must pass all classes in order to serve on the Student Council. Students must not have ISS or OSS as well.
Student Council members will participate in Box Top Collection, Pennies for Patients, Canned Food Drive, and help with a clean up day at Frink. Students will meet with Mrs. Parks 1 to 2 times a month during their lunch to talk about issues in the school as well as plan activities to better the school.
