MS8 offers three after-school programs.
Thanks to a grant, FYI provides no-cost after-school, vacation camp, and summer programs to a limited number of registered sixth through eighth grade students.
CHAMPS is NYC’s public middle school athletic program. MS8 teachers lead several free athletic teams and clubs in Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons.
Kids Cre8 is a fee-based after-school enrichment club program. MS8 teachers, as well as grant-funded outside providers, lead once-a-week clubs in three 10-week sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring).
We are currently working to better coordinate these programs. Some Kids Cre8 clubs are being offered together with FYI enrichment offerings (click here for details). FYI and MS8 teachers hope to combine CHAMPS and FYI sports programming in basketball and track to offer more comprehensive programs and teams across the school year.
