What's New

Meet the Principal - BCC Middle School #2

Please save the date for the next PTA meeting on February 22, 7 p.m in the NCC Media Center.  Our featured speaker will be Dr. Traci Townsend, principal of BCC Middle School #2 (soon to have a new name!).

The opening of the new Middle School is just seven months away, and we could not be more excited.  Our goal, along with that of Chevy Chase Elementary and Rock Creek Forest, is for the new Middle School to be fully functioning with the support it needs from the day the school opens. In order for this to happen, most of the planning for the 2017–2018 school year needs to start now since there is no current operating PTA for the new Middle School. 

If you would like to be involved in the new Middle School planning process, please reach out to one of the individuals below. All input and support is welcomed, and there are many areas where your participation could be so valuable. This is an exciting time for our students matriculating to a brand new school, and we encourage our community to be involved in the process and have your voices heard along with those of our fellow feeder schools.

NCC’s March Mania Game Night & Silent Auction
When: March 24, 2017, 7 - 11pm
Where: Tapp'd in Bethesda

Please join us in the game room at Tapp’d for a fun-filled night with NCC parents, teachers, and staff. Celebrate NCC’s Final Four . . . classes. (This is the last auction at which NCC will have four grades!).

  • Cheer on your favorite NCAA basketball teams with six big screens to watch the Sweet Sixteen games!
  • Show off your boardwalk skills and compete in our skeeball tournament!

And most importantly, come bid on exciting silent and live auction items, including the ever-popular teacher outings, the chance to be “principal for a day,” a year of childcare from Kids After Hours . .  . and much more!

Why you shoud come! 
This is one of the PTA's largest fundraisers of the year. The money raised allows the PTA to fund the many cultural programs, teacher supplies, community building activities, and services that enrich our students’ academic experiences at NCC and support our amazing faculty. Plus, any funds raised above $10,000 this year will be contributed to the new middle school to help the currently PTA-less school* get off the ground. We are aiming to raise at least $15,000 to help our kids this year and into the future.

What can you do to help
Donate an item or gift certificate to the auction. We are targeting 20 items valued at $100 or higher for the silent auction and 5 items valued at $500 or higher for the live auction. Please consider contributing an item or experience to which you may have access. Popular items include gift certificates for restaurants, behind-the-scenes exclusives, sporting event and concert tickets, vacation homes, etc.  This event only will be successful with your generosity!  Please submit a donation form and let us know by March 1 if you have an item to donate.

We also will offer "sign up" events at the auction, where a number of people can make a donation to attend a party or event. We already have a family outdoor movie night, hip hop dance class, a boot camp and bloody marys party. Please consider hosting an event/party (costs incurred are tax-deductible as allowed by law). Be creative! If you have an idea for a party, but don't have the space to host, or have space but think you don't have any good ideas, let us know and we'll see if we can help do some match making.

Also, please contact Amy Selco ([email protected]) if you would like your business to be a sponsor of the event. Sponsor packages include tickets and marketing opportunities. 

Keep an eye out for the launch of the ticket sales and auction website in mid-February. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to the auction committee members if you have any questions or ideas. Looking forward to a fun time for a good cause on March 24!
