CRAGMONT PTA

The Cragmont PTA is a school-based, non-profit organization that supports our school and children in a variety of ways. We fund enrichment programs, specialized support for some students, supplies for all teachers, and we also organize a series of community-building events each year. Finally, we sponsor a rich array of after school enrichment classes. We have a lot of fun making our school the best it can possibly be!  

If you would like to be involved, or have questions, email: ptapresident@cragmont.org

What We Do

OUR ROLE AT CRAGMONT

  1. The PTA helps fund vital programs that require financial assistance in order to continue. Our PTA is able to fund programs such as; art, dance, music, and afterschool enrichment classes.

  2. The PTA funds empowering programs that teach conflict resolution through peace. Cragmont works with MOSAIC Project, an experiential program that celebrates diversity, teaches empathy, assertiveness and peaceful conflict resolution.

  3. The PTA helps kids be successful. Research shows that kids do better in school when their parents are engaged in the community. There are so many ways to be involved at Cragmont! You can participate in PTA meetings, hold a position on the PTA board, lend a hand at fundraisers, conduct school tours or volunteer in the classroom.

  4. The PTA builds community. Our active calendar of diverse school activities and events provides the opportunity to form lasting bonds with fellow families within the Cragmont community.
