Birthday Policy and Celebration Dates

Birthday Policy and Celebration Dates

MMA Families,

MMA is cadets' “home away from home,” so we do our best to make special events, such as birthdays, special for them. Please review the information below regarding how we will celebrate birthdays this year.

Celebration with the corps

Each month, cadets who have a birthday that month will be recognized during a special celebration with the corps. This birthday celebration will be in the dining hall with the entire corps of cadets. Ice cream provided by Sage Dining will be served to all cadets, and the corps will sing happy birthday. Cadets who have a birthday in...

  • August will celebrate on August 19th
  • September will celebrate on September 16th
  • October will celebrate on October 14th
  • November will celebrate on November 18th
  • December will celebrate on December 10th
  • January will celebrate on January 20th
  • February will celebrate on February 24th
  • March will celebrate on March 23rd
  • April will celebrate on April 13th
  • May, June & July will celebrate on May 4th

In addition, a private pizza party will be held for those cadets who have a birthday during the given month. Payments will be organized via the Parents Committee. Only cadets who have birthdays within that month will attend. They will be served a selection of pizza, sodas and a cake to share.

How you can celebrate your cadet on his actual birthday

On your cadet's actual birthdate, you may send your cadet a singular pizza, small cake, etc. This is not a full party, but rather your special birthday recognition for your cadet. Parents should make their own arrangements for delivery. We recommend:

Please respect the birthday policy

Previously, families contacted CLAs to ask for assistance with picking up pizza and cake for individual parties within the barracks. While we worked with parent requests at that time, the disruption to the evening schedule negatively impacted study hall and academic performance for cadets. Also, the number of requests created a strain on CLA time. The birthday party plans outlined above replace those individual parties, allowing us to recognize and celebrate birthdays, and give parents a chance to support.

If you have any questions, please reach me via email at or by phone at 573.581.1776 ext. 296.

Thank you,
