Honors for Students Organization
Caldwell Honors for Students Organization
On January 10, 1995, the organization known as Caldwell Honors for Students Organization was formed. The founding premise of this organization was to recognize and reward those students who exhibited excellence in academics, perfect attendance, or outstanding participation within the school and community.
Caldwell Honors for Students invites everyone to attend their board meetings held on 5:30 PM at the high school on the first Monday of every other month during the school year- on days that school is in session – moving to the second Monday if it falls on a holiday like September and this January.
If you are interested in recognizing and rewarding academic achievement, this organization is for you! Step up to the plate and get involved in paying it forward.
Since its formation, the organization has collected and disbursed $48,800 paid directly to graduates for college books and more than $8,000 paid to teachers for classroom materials. The board plans to increase the reimbursement for students from $200 to $250 and include digital textbooks, tools of the trade, course materials, and/or equipment needed for college or technical school advanced education.
The Organization offers to provide:
- Academic Letters and Bars
- Student Reimbursement: Hardcopy and/or Digital Textbooks, tools of the trade, course materials and/or equipment
- Teacher Grants
- Student Project Reimbursements
- Student of the Grading Period Awards
- Student Testing Fees
We deeply appreciate your past and continued financial support. However, your active support is a necessary ingredient to keep the process moving forward. You are needed to actively participate in this organization in order to keep this hope alive for the future benefit of the young people of Caldwell High School. By attending meetings, you can not only give of your time but direct input for future direction and accomplishments of the Organization and our students.
Your help is needed, and your involvement is encouraged!
There are even more ideas, programs, and means for honoring deserving students. Your personal commitment to attend meetings or direct involvement on a steering committee will also be a rewarding experience. Want to get involved?

Awards available to students
The Academic LetterThe letter is similar to that earned for athletic performance, but unique to the Caldwell Honors for Students Organization.
- Students must be enrolled full-time.
- Freshmen must earn at least a 3.3-grade point average for the first 3 grading periods in high school.
- Sophomores, juniors, and seniors must earn a 3.3-grade point average for the current school year which will also include the last grading period of the previous school year.
Consideration is given to students attending Caldwell High School as well as affiliated career centers and post-secondary schools.
The Student of the Grading Period Students are nominated for this award by the faculty each grading period for academic achievement or improvement, school involvement, or effort for the benefit of fellow students. Grade point average is not a factor to be considered. The organization will make forms of financial award to students available as money allows.
