What's New

Save the Date! 

NCC PTA's Fabulous Auction is Friday, March 16, 2018, at Tapp'd, 4915 St Elmo Ave, Bethesda. It's the event of the year!

Please join us in the game room at Tapp’d for a fun-filled night with NCC parents, teachers, and staff.  And most importantly, come bid on exciting silent and live auction items. 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. We are aiming to raise at least $15,000 to help our kids this year and into the future.

Please sign up to help the PTA host a STEM festival for our students and families to learn about STEM together.

Let's hear it for the trees! 

The PTA is pleased to share that TreeMontgomery has agreed to donate and plant 24 trees on NCC grounds this spring! Wahoo! As you may know, the school lost a lot of trees when the new addition was added. As our result, our children and staff have been without shade protection on the playground, which can be very miserable on hot days. The PTA explored getting a couple trees donated, but with TreeMontgomery's hard work and environmental assessment and the NCC School's commitment to working with them through permits and approvals, they came up with a final, approved plan for planting 24 trees now and more later! The trees are 15-20 feet in height, and will be fast growing, so should make a difference soon! TreeMontgomery will also take care of maintenance of the trees for two years after planting at no cost to the school or PTA.

In addition, the NCC PTA received a $1,000 grant from GreenWorks which is covering the cost of an online curriculum course for our science teachers with lesson plans on the importance of the tree canopy. The NCC Green Team will also be working with students to develop some PSA videos later this spring, so keep an eye out for that!

Also, if your yard is looking a little tree sparse, check out TreeMontgomery's website, They will plant up to two trees for free at private residences. In fact, we're the first school they've worked with!

Attached is the map showing where the trees will be planted this spring. We'll be having a tree celebration April 20 with the children to celebrate! We have also raised money to install a couple sun shades near the playground and are finalizing plans for those as well.

Teaching our children grit and empathy - February 1st, 2018
