Annual Holiday Food Drive on now! Please donate by putting non-perishable food in the designated containers at school entrances and in the Multi-Purpose Room. Holiday gift baskets will be distributed to anonymous Cragmont families in need. We strongly encourage gift cards to local grocery stores this year so families can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and meat. Please leave gift cards with Lorraine in the office.
