Prank Day is an unofficial day at P.S. 38. It always takes place on the second to last day of school. On Prank Day, students play pranks on other students and the teachers of P.S. 38. The teachers, of course, very much disapprove. Principal Nichols always try to stop the pranks but Nate Wright who is the "Prank Master", always pulls one off.

Nate Wright has the tendency to pull off the most, biggest and best pranks, although in one year his things were confiscated by his father when Ellen Wright noticed Nate circled Prank day on the calendar. Nate had to think hard.

The teachers use several means to try to stop it, from punishing pranksters to invading lockers to posting a "cop" outside the school, but nothing works and the students continue pulling pranks.
