Birthday Celebrations

Birthdays and Gifts

Catoma will acknowledge birthdays on a daily basis during morning announcements.  We encourage parents to take part in the Catoma Birthday Book Club; a book dedication program designed to celebrate your child’s birthday and to help the library collection grow.  Please contact the school’s media specialist for additional information.

Parents may bring store-bought cupcakes, cookies, fruit snacks, etc. for birthday treats during child’s lunch period only.  The item must be ready to serve quickly and easily. 

Invitations to birthday celebrations outside of school may be passed out at school only if all students in the class receive one. Flowers, balloons, gifts, and cakes may not be brought to or delivered to school.


Two school parties (Winter Holiday and Valentine’s Day) are scheduled during the year.  These parties will be coordinated between the classroom teacher and the room mothers. The classroom teacher and/or room mother will send party guidelines and procedures home.  If you would like to volunteer, please see your child’s teacher.  Special celebrations such as academic achievement (Ex. AR. Goal Reward Party) may be approved by the principal.  Deliveries of gifts, balloons, etc. are not allowed and will not be accepted.
