Welcome, new Cragmont families!

Welcome to Cragmont School!  We are so excited to have you join our outstanding Cragmont community.  You are now part of a thriving community committed to making our school an awesome place to be.  We are an active, innovative, engaged, and inclusive community of staff, students, and families, all housed in a beautiful building with expansive views of the bay.   

 

As our mission statement says, we are dedicated to providing an outstanding education for all students while laying the foundation for each child’s personal success. Our programs combine academic rigor and intellectual challenge with strong support for students of all abilities.  We are committed to a safe and supportive environment that includes all students.  Our enriching curriculum includes science, art, music, P.E., dance, and trips to our impressive and beautiful library.  

 

Start and Release Times  

Our first day of school is Monday, August 16th, 2021 with school beginning at 9:00 a.m. There will be NO minimum days at the beginning of this school year.

 

Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten:

  • Monday-Friday, 9:00a.m. - 2:15p.m.

 

1st Grade-5th Grades:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 3:10 p.m.

  • Wednesday 9:00 a.m. - 2:15 p.m. (Wednesdays are early release days for grades 1st-5th)

 

In addition to our school day, Berkeley Unified School District runs an afterschool program at Cragmont School called LEARNS.  Our LEARNS program offers academic time for homework and tutoring by LEARNS Instructional Technicians, enrichment classes, and supervised play.  Payment for this strong and enriching program is based on a sliding scale.  With pandemic protocols, our LEARNS program will look a little different than it did at this time last year.  We will still offer afterschool care, but our program, ending times, and cost will be determined at a later date.  We will post information on our website as soon as it becomes available.
