After School Program

Cragmont All Stars After School Program

The foundation of the Cragmont All Stars After School Program is the Berkeley LEARNS (Links Enrichment, Academics and Recreation to the Needs of Students) After School Program. The fundamental goal of our After School Program is to support children in reaching their full potential by providing academic, recreational and cultural/artistic enrichment. Students receive academic assistance from staff, Cal students, and volunteers. The staff includes an After School Program Specialist and Instructional Technicians:

  • Veronika Huntsberry, After School Program Specialist (510-644-4892,
  • Morning Program – Genia Scott
  • Kindergarten – Lisa Jones & Yagoit Ahmed
  • 1st & 2nd grades – Edmark Aberin & Yagoit Ahmed
  • 3rd grade – Unique Wells
  • 4th grade – LaMonica Williams
  • 5th grade – Mika Chrisentery & Victoria Davis

The program runs onsite from the end of the regular school day until 6 p.m. Children living in South Berkeley have the option of going by bus at the end of the day to Longfellow Middle School to be picked up at 5:30pm.

Applications for our program are accepted all school year.

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 Mandarin to theater to reading and writing workshops. These classes are onsite. There are 3 sessions that run throughout the school year.

Please visit the PTA Enrichment Classes Main Page for the most up-to-date information.

Class sizes are limited; if there are more students interested in a class than there are spaces, a lottery will be held to determine enrollment.
