MS 8 offers three after-school programs.
- Thanks to a grant, Community Counseling and Mediation For Youth Initiative (CCM-FYI) provides no-cost after-school, vacation camp, and summer programs to a limited number of registered sixth through eighth grade students.
- The PTA runs a fee-based after-school enrichment club program called Kids Cre8. MS 8 teachers, as well as grant-funded outside providers, lead once-a-week clubs in three 10-week sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring).
- MS 8 teachers lead several free athletic teams and clubs in Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons through CHAMPS, NYC’s public middle school athletic program.
In 2017-18 we are working to better coordinate these programs. Some Kids Cre8 clubs are being offered together with FYI enrichment offerings (see the Kids Cre8 club list for details!). FYI and MS 8 teachers hope to combine CHAMPS and FYI sports programming in basketball and track to offer more comprehensive programs and teams across the school year.
