Welcome, new Cragmont families!

The Cragmont PTA welcomes all incoming families to Cragmont. Generally, we invite incoming kindergarten families to a series of summer playdates at the Cragmont playground. However, due to social distancing in 2020, these events have been postponed. 

If you would like to join our email list to be notified of virtual events and community builders, please email James Na, PTA President at with your name, your child's name and incoming grade, and your email address.
