"Not only did our School Eight students experience the beautiful music and history of this art but the acrobats entertained the students with great energy and new acrobatic routines. These members displayed astounding feats of skill, focus, and athleticism".

Thank you to Clifton Clean Communities for providing this wonderful program "Grand Falloons: Science". It was engaging, funny and outstanding in its presentation to our students with the concept of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

School 8 - Holiday Laser Show
Our students enjoyed the Holiday Laser Show presented by Laser Magic on Wednesday December 18th! Not only did we learn how lasers work and what they are but we sang songs such as Let it Snow and Sleigh Ride along with other current pop songs. We followed the adventures of Squeaky the laser penguin as he tried to figure out the best way to return home to Antarctica for the holidays. Do you think he made it home? We know! 
School 8 - Winter Concert
On Wednesday, December 18th, School Eight’s Winter Concert was bursting with joy, smiles and a whole lot of music and singing. The chorus were amazing, our strings group was well composed by our Mr. Krsygman, and our band was well directed by Mrs. Bethany Louie. Our audience, consisting of our students, family, friends and special visitors, Mr. Jason Leshowitz and Mrs. Samantha DeRose, were singing in unison to final song, Feliz Navidad.  Our winter concert is a great example of our community that we have here at School Eight. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all!
