Philosophy
 

 The After School Activities (ASA) Program is an integral part of the total education process for middle school students. After school activities provide students with the opportunity to explore new areas of interest, cultivate and enhance existing skills, and grow both socially and cognitively in a safe and supportive environment.  Although these activities take place after the school day, all of our goals, rules and expectations remain the same.   

 

General Information

Activities are held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, most weeks throughout the school year, from 3:05 – 4:15 pm. Exceptions are days that schools are closed for any reason, and early release days.

ATHLETIC TEAMS - 7th and 8th grade students only are eligible for competitive teams. Teams compete after school on a pre-arranged schedule with other middle schools in their league. Parents and students are invited to support home games, but non-team students may not attend away games. 
Game Schedules can be obtained from your child's coach.  Game dates and location  are also posted on the NBMS Calendar on the main page of this website.

To be eligible to try out for Athletic Teams, all students must have a current physical (within the last 2 years), a medical card, and a  parent permission slip. If students do not have their necessary forms, they will not be permitted to try out. This is a non-negotiable MCPS rule.  If the student makes the team, they will also need the Application to Participate listed below:


 MATHLETES 2017-2018

Coach: Stacy Levy

 

Math Team prepares students for competitive and applied mathematics.  The team, made of students who are also known as Mathletes, participate in a variety of math challenges (The MCPS Middle School Math League, AMC 8 Math Counts, etc.)   Math Team meets on most Wednesdays, starting October 18 and running through February 7.  There will be four county competitions (11/8, 12/6, 1/10, and 2/7) that will end at 5:30pm. 

 

Students should have a passion for working through challenging math problems and be self-motivated. There will be a qualifying test for interested students.  Seventh and eighth grade students will be given priority registration, however sixth grade students who make the team, will be invited to participate in at least one competition.

 

PARENTS of Mathletes will be expected to help out once in the following areas: carpooling students to one county meet, preparing the materials for a competition, or chaperoning during the competition hosted at North Bethesda Middle School.   

Mathletes and their parents will need to prearrange a pick-up for participants at 5:30pm on the days of the four MCPS county competitions (11/8, 12/6, 1/10, and 2/7). 

 

There is an informational meeting and qualifying test for interested students on Wednesday, October 18.

 SGA Dance Expectations for students and parents: Student Dancers

  • Students will follow NBMS rules for behavior and dress.
  • Students are expected to stay at the dance for the full event.
  • SGA Dances are for NBMS students only. We are unable to accommodate visitors from other schools or from out-of-town.
  • No food in the gym; all food remains in the cafeteria.
  • NBMS understands that you will make arrangements to pick up your child when the dance ends. 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 dance.
  • Parents are expected to arrive at NBMS promptly to pick up all students.
  • To ensure the safety of all students, teachers wait until the last student goes home. Students not picked up promptly will be discouraged from purchasing a ticket to the next scheduled dance. Should a student be picked up late, parents will be informed of this consequence.
