When we return to school in the fall, every middle school student and teacher will participate in a Reading Circle book discussion. Our teachers have selected 15 books to share. Your student should choose one of these books for participation in a Reading Circle. In addition to the book for our Reading Circles, we expect all of our students to read throughout the summer for a minimum of 30 minutes every day. Your child should read at least three other books before the end of the summer. Because student interest is key to developing a love of reading, we are leaving the selection of those books up to you and your child. Rising 7th and 8th graders have all been assigned one book to read over the summer for their science classes. These books can count toward the required four summer reading books.
