Escriptus Honor Society Recognizes Top ELA Students
WEST ORANGE, NJ – Rising seniors at West Orange High School meeting the rigorous Escriptus Honor Society requirements joined the ranks of the prestigious honor society on June 10, while graduating seniors received their cords.
To qualify for Escriptus, students must receive a grade of “A” in all Language Arts classes for all four years of high school. Once becoming a member, students must attend meetings, maintain a monthly bulletin board, participate in school activities, assist in the coordination of the annual Poetry Out Loud event, and be published in three separate publications.
Escriptus advisors Mindy Harvat and Molly Wachtel welcomed family, friends and colleagues present for the ceremony, and presented cords to the seniors.
