Cottonwood Parties (formerly Cottonwood Happenings)

Fostering community spirit is another goal of the Cottonwood PTO.   Parent Parties and Kid Parties (formerly called Happenings) are not only a great fundraising opportunity, but also a fabulous way to meet others families within our community.

Parent parties involve Cottonwood parents hosting an event for other parents in the community. Previous gatherings have included a parent night out, girls night out, painting party, etc.  The price of these parties range from $25 to $50 per attendee depending on the event.

Kid parties are typically held at a grade level and are open to all kids in the class.  The party can be limited should you be concerned about safety, or cost of the event. Past events include a princess tea, skating party, mother/son sports game, party in the park, pool party, movie night under the stars, etc.  The price of these parties have ranged from $15 to $25.

Have a great idea for a party?  The possibilities are endless.  We would love to help you make it happen!  Please contact Monica Bogue for Parent Parties at or Nicky Fleming for Kid Parties at
