Important discussions will take place at the first 
PTSA meeting of the year this upcoming Thursday Oct. 10 at 7 pm in the Media Center. Principal Dr. AnneMarie Smith will discuss the School Improvement Plan and how it impacts all students. She and her staff will also talk about the math and English curriculum that the school is piloting. Parents can also ask Dr. Smith questions about other topics. We will also hear about the new student-led activities planned this year, through an energized Student Government Association. Finally, the PTSA budget for the year will be discussed and voted on; the proposed budget has several new initiatives in support of teachers, continuous academic improvement and school climate. Please attend this meeting and bring your ideas with you.

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

 

Hopefully you have heard the news by now that there will be a social next Friday, October 11 from 7-9pm at NBMS for ONLY 6th graders! The Student Government Association (SGA), PTSA, and NBMS staff are really excited to work together to host this event where the students will be able to play basketball, ping pong, and corn hole and enjoy some party treats. There will be a DJ too!


Of course, we can’t do this without the help of the 6th grade parents. Please take look at the Signup Genius and see if you can volunteer an hour or two of your time to make this event a success.

Thank you so much for your support!

NB STAFF SNACK SIGN UP

posted Sep 19, 2019, 2:16 PM by Web Admin



Dear NB Families, 

Katrina & I are organizing "hospitality" for the administration, teachers, and staff at NB again this year.  Just as we did last year, we are trying to organize parent volunteers to contribute SNACKS for the monthly staff meetings. We need to provide enough snacks for all 70 of our NB teachers.  If you could, please sign up to bring something.  The staff meetings start at 3:20pm, so if you could simply drop off your donation any time before 3:20 pm on the date you signed up for -- that would be great and truly appreciated!  :)  We've listed dates throughout the calendar year, so feel free to sign up for multiple dates.

First SNACK is on Monday, October 7th!!!! 



Thanks, 
Stacey Singer & Katrina Sukduang 
Hospitality Chairs

NBMS Skate Night

❄Hello North Bethesda families!❄

Registration is now open for our back-to-school social skate night at Cabin John Ice Rink on Saturday, October 5, 2019 from 6:30-8pm.

Please see attached flier below with details about the event and see attached registration and waiver form to register your child. Please print out and submit just the registration and waiver form (double-sided is great!) and send it in to school with your child to submit in the main office. There will be a box marked "Skate Night." 

We will be collecting these forms over the next 2 weeks and the deadline to register is September 30, 2019. We had a great turnout last year and the kids had a ton of fun--long-time skaters and newbies alike!

Please note this event is for NBMS students only and is sponsored by our fabulous PTSA. 

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Your Skate Night Co-Chairs
