Welcome Party Recap

Our PS 8 community has gained some new additions – over 100 in fact! One day before PS 8 officially opened its doors for the school year, incoming kindergarten and new 1st grade families gathered together at BBP Pier 2 for a Welcome Party. Wearing color-coded name tags, kids were able to search for others who would be in their class, adding to the excitement (and calming the nerves) of getting back in a classroom.

In between face painting and crafting, kids had fun working out their energy on the swings and playground equipment. Brand new, brightly-colored tees were debuted the Pop-Up Store, much to everyone’s delight. Kids have been proudly showing off their school spirit in the halls during these first weeks of school.

Special thanks to our Welcome Committee and Co-VPs of Events for putting together such a fantastic event!
