Pick Up Policy

NBMS PTSA understands that you will make arrangements to pick up your child when the event ends at 8pm.

However, if your child leaves earlier, for the safety of your child, we require that a parent/adult escort sign the

student out of the Ice rink. Parents are expected to arrive at Cabin John Ice Rink promptly at 8pm to pick up all

students. To ensure the safety of all students, NBMS parent’s volunteers wait until the last student goes home.

Students not picked up promptly at 8pm will be discouraged from purchasing a ticket to the next scheduled

PTSA event. Should a student be picked up late, parents will be informed of this consequence. Thank You!

The North Bethesda Middle School (NBMS) Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) Board is looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year! One of the best decisions you can make early in the school year is to join the PTSA! Be among the first 125 parents to sign up for a family membership to the NBMS PTSA and you will receive the NBMS Phoenix car magnet! Act now, as we expect to run out. Those who have paid by Thursday at 5 p.m. and are among the first 125 will be able to pick up their magnets at tomorrow night's Back-to-School Night: http://www.nbms-ptsa.org/membership

  • Family memberships cost $45 for up to two parents and all NBMS students. In addition to the magnet, you will receive the school directory once it is printed.
  • Only want an individual membership ($25 for one parent)? You will still receive the school directory.
  • In addition, all families giving $25 or more to our direct donation campaign by October 31, 2017 will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.
  • If you prefer to pay by check, please use this form.

Becoming a member of the NBMS PTSA is the best way to support your child's education.  Your dues allow us to cover basic operational costs (such as insurance for meetings and programs and publication of the student directory), sponsor events and activities (March Madness basketball tournament, cupcake wars and others), contribute to departments and programs (such as the media center, student assemblies, and the Science Olympiad), and purchase tools and supplies to enhance classroom learning.  Membership also helps you to connect to NBMS teachers and administrators, other parents, and valuable resources so that you can have a voice in your child's education and stay informed and advocate for issues affecting your child.  Only PTSA members receive a free NBMS directory.

Please remember to join and make your direct donation TODAY!

Thank you!

Back to School Night - September 7, 2017

posted Sep 5, 2017, 5:10 PM by Web Admin

Here's some information from the Principal's Letter and back-to-school packet. (It is available at http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/schools/northbethesdams/ and has important information such as bus routes and bell schedules.)

Back-to-School Night is Thursday, September 7, from 6:25 p.m.-8:39 p.m. There are additional meetings for parents of students in Special Education (5:45 in the gym) and ESOL (6:00 in the media center).

Parents will begin the evening in their students' homeroom classrooms (posted now at http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/schools/northbethesdams/news/news.aspx?id=549977)  at 6:25 p.m., then rotate through a much-shortened version of the school day, from first through seventh periods (ending at 8:39 p.m.), using their students' own schedules. Teachers for each class will introduce themselves and discuss curriculum and expectations. 

This evening is intended for adults only. Parking is limited, so it is helpful when parents who live nearby choose to walk.

8th Grade Year End Activities

posted Jun 14, 2017, 1:44 PM by Web Admin

It is hard to believe that our 8th grade class of 2017 will soon be graduating!  Besides the 8th grade dance (which was well attended!), these students will get to enjoy a well-deserved day at Hershey park from 7:50am to 7:30pm, Thursday, June 15th, a Donut and Year book signing event on Friday, June 16th from  8:30 to 9:15am, and ending with the 8th grade Awards Ceremony at 11am in the NBMS gymnasium and which will last until 12:30pm. 

Please remind your kids to bring plenty of sunscreen for the Hershey trip, a bathing suit in case they want to swim at the water park, and to bring extra spending money for drinks and snacks so that they can stay hydrated throughout the day.

For Friday, remind your kids to bring their yearbooks and a pen for the yearbook signing event.
