NBMS will again be offering its highly successful after school program on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:15 - 4:15, September - May.

 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.

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.

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.

 MATHLETES 2019-2020

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 TBD.

If you are interested in participating on the Math Team, there will be an information meeting/tryout for students on Wednesday, September 25th from 3:00-4:15pm.

Please register your student online at  http://bit.ly/NBMSMATHTEAM2019  by noon on Tuesday, September 24th.

If you have a strong interest in STEM, please attend an after-school interest meeting on Thursday, September 19th , in the Media Center.

 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.
