Prank Day is an unofficial day at P.S. 38. It's usually on the last or second to last day of school. On Prank Day, students play pranks to other students and the teachers of P.S. 38, although teachers do not approve.
In the Big Nate comics, Nate is the kind of person who pulls off the biggest pranks, although one year his things were confiscated by his father.
. The teachers do lots of things to try to stop it, from punishing prankers to invading lockers to posting a "cop" outside the school, but nothing works and the students keep pulling pranks.
