Meets weekly to provide opportunities for fifth grade students who excel in mathematics to learn and play the 24 game and work in teams to quickly solve challenging math problems. Eventually, a small competition team will be selected from the Club who work well together, whose skill levels will allow them to be successful, and whose behaviors represent NFMAA’s values to compete at the District Fifth Grade Math Competition toward the end of the year.

National Junior Honor Society

The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929. Our chapter demonstrates these characteristics in both our school and community through our participation in Trick-or treating for Golisano children’s hospital, charitable walk-a-thons, our annual Winter Ball, and ushering at various shows.

At NFMAA, students are first invited to apply for membership in the spring of their 6th grade year. Students may also be invited to apply for membership in the spring of 7th grade. The initial invitation is based upon grades and conduct but an invitation does not guarantee acceptance. Members are expected to maintain good grades and excellent conduct.

When: Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday from 2:30 – 4:00 PM
Sponsor: Kathleen Wheeler & Peggy Bregenzer
