NCC Parent Teacher Association
The PTA is excited to bring back Culture and Heritage Night, a North Chevy Chase tradition (formerly known as International Night). It is a chance to celebrate all of the nationalities, ethnicities, and cultures that make up our NCC community.
The whole family is invited to tour exhibit tables, enjoy cultural entertainment, and share in a multicultural dinner. We encourage you to wear clothing or costumes and let us know if your kid or family want to present cultural entertainment on the night of the event.
Please let us know if you will be attending and if/how you would like to volunteer during this event:
There are lots of ways to help and participate!
We hope to see you and your families on May 30th!

10 Reasons to Get Involved at NCC
1 Volunteering makes a big difference. Research consistently shows that kids whose parents are involved in their schools do better.
2 It’s fun! Even simple events like bingo night or math game night are a great way to spend time with your family and support your school.
3 It feels great to participate! Your child spends a lot of time at school, and it’s great to share some of her school-related experiences with her.
4 You’ll get to know other parents. It’s powerful to create a circle of adult friends around a school, and help foster connections between families in your community.
5 Volunteering offers tangible ways to be part of things. Joining a parent group will provide concrete ways to get involved, whether at events, in the classroom, or on a committee.
6 It’s a manageable commitment. Spend an hour at a bingo night or the Big Draw, and your efforts will be appreciated. And remember, it’s always OK to say no when you’re busy.
7 You can tailor volunteering to play to your strengths. There are many ways to contribute, some of which are sure to complement your strengths, interests, or professional skills.
8 Your help is always needed. Whether it’s helping run the next big event or providing support in the classroom, there are always ways to pitch in.
9 Volunteering provides another way to get to know school and support staff to better understand their needs and ideas
10 Have a great idea? Volunteering gives you opportunities to get your ideas out there.
