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:

  • 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.

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!
