Summer Reading

The purpose of the Summer Reading Program is to…

  • foster the joy of reading
  • continue student literacy development during the summer months
  • provide a common text for literary discussion and writing at the start of the school year

Your summer reading requirement is determined by the grade you will be entering this fall. Language arts teachers will use the selected texts for beginning-of-year assessments and to learn about you as a reader and writer. You are expected to have read the texts and be familiar enough with the texts to participate in discussions and complete assessments. If you read the book in June, you will need to review it closer to the start of the school year. Please bring a copy of the book (either purchased or from the library) on the first day of school.
