PTSA Meeting - March 10, 2020

posted Mar 4, 2020, 10:23 AM by Web Admin

At next Tuesday's PTSA meeting for North Bethesda Middle School, our principal Dr. AnneMarie Smith will provide updates and answer questions about how she, our school and MCPS are addressing the coronavirius situation.

We will also have Dave Drazen, from the Parent Encouragement Program (PEP), as a guest speaker. He will cover “Power Tools for Power Struggles.” Frequent power struggles, whether between adults or between parents and children, impact relationships. Learn what happens when a conflict develops and gain some insights into redirecting that energy in ways that tend to solve problems and bring people closer. Parents can ask Dave about screen time battles. In fact, he leads PEP’s online video “Taming the Electronic Beasts.” Parents at North Bethesda Middle School will get a 40 percent discount accessing this video through the end of the school year. Details to follow.

Dr. Smith will also discuss some good news for next year, including class size, staffing and the curriculum.

It will be another informative PTSA, so please come, Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at 7 pm in the NBMS Media Center. Thank 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!

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!!!!
