National Honor Society

National Honor Society is a nationwide organization that recognizes high schoolers that meet high academic standards along with supporting criteria of leadership, service and character.  At SWR, juniors having a weighted cumulative high school GPA of 90 or above after the second marking period are then invited to apply to become a member of our NHS chapter.  If at that point in their junior year students do not have a 90 GPA they are then reconsidered after the end of their junior year and can apply in the beginning of their senior year.

In addition to the GPA requirement, eligible students must show validated community service over the course of their high school career as well as leadership roles they have held in their school or community. 

If inducted, students maintain their active member status by attending at least 7 of the 9 monthly meetings, participate in at least three of the NHS events and by completing four community service hours per month.

The students of SADD created a video to highlight Alcohol Awareness Month and Distracted Driving month. Please click here to view the video. They asked students, teachers and members of the SWR community to share their anonymous stories about how drunk driving has affected them. We thank them for their efforts in sharing these important messages with our greater community.

Nature-Inspired Writing

Group of students thumbnail246166
Shoreham-Wading River High School students took to the outdoors for some reading and writing poetry. Students in Mr. Brendan Gilley’s junior English classes analyzed and annotated three poems from Pablo Neruda, paying close attention to the way in which nature is presented throughout his works. After reading the poems, the students were tasked with acquiring insight from the nature all around them. Students practiced applying literary elements through the scenery, emulating Neruda’s style.

“The lesson provided an academic introduction to the spring season, and the opportunity for students to spend some time acknowledging the beauty of Shoreham-Wading River High School’s campus,” Mr. Gilley said.
