The MTC Honor Society is an organization formed to recognize students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character at Mother Teresa of Calcutta Catholic School. 7th and 8th graders are eligible for membership. To be nominated, a student must have earned all A’s in core subjects, all 4’s in core II subject areas, and all 4’ in Conduct, Approaches to Learning, and Accelerated Reading the first two quarters of the current school year.
Once nominated, the student submits an essay explaining how he/she demonstrates excellence in the areas of leadership, service, citizenship, and character. The essay is evaluated by the principal, assistant principal, and that student’s teachers. This group then votes on acceptance of the candidate. Induction usually takes place in February.
Once inducted into the Mother Teresa of Calcutta Honor Society the student must maintain the eligibility criteria. Any grade below a 90 or a score of 4, including Conduct, Approaches to Learning, and Accelerated Reading, will render the student on a probation status for one quarter. If the grade(s) is/are still below the 90 or score of 4 after the following quarter, the student will be removed from the MTCHS and will be ineligible for re-nomination for the following two quarters. If a student fails to fulfill any part of the MTCHS agreement, including, but not limited to, service requirements and maintaining evidence of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character, the student’s membership in the MTCHS will be terminated.
Induction into the Mother Teresa of Calcutta Honor Society will take place once each school year, spring semester, for 7th and 8th grade students. If needed, 8th grade students may be inducted in the fall semester. The final decision for acceptance into the Mother Teresa of Calcutta Society is at the SOLE discretion of the principal and the MTCHS Committee.
Members meet periodically to plan support of academic excellence at Mother Teresa of Calcutta Catholic School.
