We are excited to announce a new partnership with 1st Day School Supplies to help families and teachers get the exact supplies needed for next school year without the hassle and aggravation of shopping at the stores. We have personally found 1st Day School Supplies to be convenient, easy and hassle free! Plus, the prices are competitive! So, this summer as the temperature hits over 100 degrees and lines at the checkout counter are a mile long... you can feel relieved having already purchased your school supplies from the comfort of your home!


You can make your purchase right now, get started by clicking above banner.




While you’re at the website, make sure to check out the selection of Vera Bradley, JanSport, and Under Armour accessories! That’s right, you can purchase your child’s supply kit, backpack, lunchbox and water bottle for next year from 1st Day School Supplies! These high quality accessories will ship with your child’s kit and allow you to check off even more from that long back to school shopping list without leaving the comfort of your home!

***Orders must be submitted by June 30th. We cannot accept any orders past this date.***







The first and third Fridays of each month are spirit days! The kids can show their school pride when wearing Catena spirit wear! Our online spirit wear store from Big Frog of Monmouth County can be found HERE!!


All orders will be delivered to your child's classroom in approximately a week. If you would like to see the items in person or check out sizing, all are welcome to visit the Big Frog store located at 2412 Route 9 South in Howell.



Kindergarten Families: Please join us at Kindergarten Lunch to help make this year a memorable one for our students at Catena! If you are able to sign up a few times each week, once a week, or even once a month we would greatly appreciate it.


Your responsibilities include cleaning hands, giving/getting lunch tickets and lunch bags, opening items, giving out ketchup and salad dressing, lining students up, rotating around the cafeteria, encouraging students to clean up after themselves, promoting safety on the playground and most of all promoting safety among students.
