Juanita National Honor Society has been a crucial part of the community. Some of our activities to support our school include Peer tutoring, campus clean ups, school supply drives for LWSD schools, mentoring programs for elementary schools, and many more. NHS encourages students to become leaders at clubs, programs, and organizations and to take part in any cause.
NHS at Juanita primarily uses OneNote and Teams to supply its members and participants with information, opportunities, policies and all other updates. A student will be added to both platforms after filling out the Participation Application and gaining acceptance into NHS.
