What this means is, you should probably call the court to find out, and the number should be on your paperwork. Get the name of the person you talk to and write it down. Be patient, make sure you get the right answer, write it down.
What you absolutely should not do, is fail to show up on the 8th, even if it isn't on the calendar. Have your paperwork with you.
Better yet, hire an attorney to defend you in the case, and he or she will get the court date nailed down as part of the job. One place to find qualified lawyers is our website, http://attorneypages.com
