Earlier,Book Club for Kids came to Eliot-Hine MS to talk with students about a new book, Ungifted by Gordon Korman and the episode is now available. Book Club for Kids is a free podcast and great forum where students talk about books! The host/executive producer Kitty Felde is recipient of a 2017 Arts and Humanities Fellowship from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities. Eliot-Hine students really enjoyed chatting with Kitty and KNX anchor Randy Kerdoon. Please tune in to see what our students had to say!

Eliot-Hine MS celebrated their 8th-graders at the 2017 Promotion last week. The students were recognized for their hard work and accomplishments achieved during their middle school career. A special congratulations to Valedictorian Nafisa Weeks! Some high schools our Eliot-Hine graduations will attend are McKinley Tech HS, Banneker HS, Eastern HS, Duke Ellington School for the Arts, and Phelps HS.
Eastern High School Principal, Sah Brown, was the keynote speaker for the ceremony. He discussed the all that the graduating students had already overcome and the numerous future success we look forward to hearing about as they move to high school. Best of luck, graduates!
Twelve of Eliot-Hine’s 6th, 7th, and 8th graders were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society during a ceremony recently. This is the first cohort of inductees at Eliot-Hine, and the group is off to a great start getting involved in the community! The NJHS members were ushers at the 2017 Promotion ceremony and helped with end-of-year festivities. The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.
Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. We look forward to all the support this special group will provide moving forward!
