This is a great time to join one or both of the two NBMS PTSA listservs:

NBMS PTSA Listserv (link)
This is our primary listserv. Its purpose is to communicate the activities of the PTSA with the school staff, parents, and students. Posts are limited to information from the NBMSPTSA, NBMS, and MCPS, as well as occasional educational announcements. (E.g. this listserv is the one where information about after-school activities and other PTSA events is shared.) If you only join one list, this should be the one, so that you can stay updated on PTSA and school news. Join by clicking the “Join” button at the link above or sending an email to: (Please mention that you have an incoming NB student.)

NBMS Discussion Listserv (link)
Want the opportunity to connect with other parents? This forum allows the school community to discuss NBMS, education, and related issues and to post non-commercial notices beyond the scope of the PTSA listserv. Join by clicking the “Join” button at the link above or sending an email to: (Please mention that you have an incoming NB student.)
