Sk8 for 8

Sk8 for 8 is part of PS8 Homecoming Weekend 2023!

We capped off PS8’s Homecoming Weekend with a day of roller skating, community, and fun in support of PS8 on Sunday, October 15, 12-2pm at Pier 2 Skating Rink in Brooklyn Bridge Park. PS8 families, alums, and their guests joined the fun!


Students skated at the Sk8 for 8 event to support PS8, raising over $16,000!

Congrats to First Grade, who won an ice cream party for the highest percentage of participation! A huge thank you to Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory for their donation and ongoing support of the school.

Participant = Student collecting AT LEAST ONE DONATION in Pledgestar

Why the fundraiser?

We need your help to Bridge the Gap!

Each year, there is a sizable shortfall between the funding DOE provides and the vital school programs which pave the path to success for ALL PS8 students. Learn more here.

Thank you for your support of PS8 and its students!
