PTA Enrichment Classes

The Cragmont PTA also coordinates additional After School Enrichment Classes. These classes provide opportunities for students to explore additional interests after school hours. The program is organized by parent volunteers through the PTA and taught by independent instructors (not Cragmont or BUSD staff).  These classes are open to ALL students, including those enrolled in LEARNS.  Fees apply whether or not student is enrolled in LEARNS. A limited number of scholarships are available.

Class topics range from Spanish to Art to Chess to writing workshops, and many others. These classes are onsite. There are 3 sessions that run throughout the school year.
