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:


 *Parents/Volunteers who are drivers to away games (taking other student-athletes besides their child) need to complete this training and print/turn it into the coach or the athletic coordinator. Please see link below:

 MATHLETES 2018-2019

Coach: Stephanie Needham and Amy Watkins 

The Math Team is a group of students interested in solving math problems competitively. The weekly practices consist of problem solving, mainly by working on problems from old competitions. Practices will be on Wednesdays after school in C106  

There are 4 meets a year where the Math Team goes to another middle school (schedule to follow) and competes against many other middle schools. A competition consists of three different rounds: team, individual, and relay. A team is made up of 6 students that splits into two groups of three for the relay part. There is an “A” team, which includes the top members, and potentially “B” and “C” teams. On meet days, we will need assistance getting to the meets. At the end of the meet, students need to picked up at the host school at 5:30 pm. The dates for the meets are Wednesdays November 14, December 12, January 9, and February 6.

If you are interested in participating on the Math Team, there will be an information meeting/tryout for students on Wednesday, September 26 after school from 3 – 4:15.

 -Science Olympiad 2018 - 2019

We are excited to kick-off a new season of Science Olympiad! The Science Olympiad team at North Bethesda is open to 7th and 8th graders. If you have a strong interest in STEM, please attend an after-school interest meeting on Thursday, September 20th (location TBD). Competing on Science Olympiad is a big year-long commitment, and it is important to understand the commitment prior to trying out for the team. New this year: To allow more opportunities for all NBMS students, a student will not be permitted to compete on both the Science and Math Olympiad teams. A student is welcome to tryout for both teams, but if initially is selected for both, the student will be asked to choose one or the other.

 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.
