National Honor Society
The Ernest Ward Middle School Honor Society is an organization that was formed from the previous National Junior Honor Society . Members of the Honor Society are chosen from deserving 7th and 8th graders after the first semester. Membership is based on qualifications that include leadership, character, and grades. To be invited to join, students must have at least a 3.5 GPA and recommendations from their teachers.
The EW Honor Society provides refreshments for the annual Veterans Day program. It also donates money for service projects and helps purchase items around the school.
New members are inducted in a candlelight ceremony every April.
