Any student receiving a 3.0-3.49 grade point average will be on the Honor Roll and will have their name and grade point displayed in the hall display case.
Principals' Honor Roll is a 3.5-4.0 grade point average. Any student receiving a grade point average of 3.5-4.0, each quarter, will have their picture displayed in the principals honor roll display cabinet in the front lobby of the school.
Students who earn a 3.7 grade point average for the first, second, and third grading periods will receive a medal for academic excellence at the Awards Night held in May. This ceremony is held in the theater at Lakota East Freshman and rewards students who have worked hard all year. The students, parents, and staff are very proud of the hard work and dedication to school that these students exhibit as is evident by this program.
In order to be invited to become a part of the 8th grade Liberty Junior Honor Society, students must have earned a cumulative 7th grade GPA of 3.9 or better. The students then must complete an application for membership (three essay questions regarding the importance of scholastic achievement, citizenship, leadership, character, and community service). Once the students apply for membership, the faculty sponsors ask for teacher approval of the candidates.
Throughout the year, LJHS members must earn ten "points." These can be earned by attending the after-school meetings, participating in community service projects, participating in the quilt making, and any other activities members and sponsors designate. The purpose of the LJHS is to create enthusiasm for scholarship building-wide.
