Dear Parents & Guardians, 

Over the summer, a young person who does not read can lose a quarter of the reading growth they made the previous year. If a middle school student reads just 5 books at their level during the summer months, they are far less likely to slide backwards. Students who read at home at least 3 times a week are twice as likely to score in the top 25% of their class in reading comprehension. Setting goals helps you to stay accountable to yourself. Goals also help you track your progress and they give you the opportunity to celebrate your successes. 

Did you know that there are….

9 weeks and 6 days during the summer vacation which is equal to:

69 days which is equal to:

1,656 hours which equal is to:

99,360 minutes which means that….

If you read for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week (which is 2.5 hours per week) during this summer vacation, you will still have 97,860 minutes which is equal to 1,631 hours which is equal to 68 days which is equal to 9 weeks and 5 days TO DO ANYTHING ELSE!!!!!

  • For rising 6th graders, teachers expect students to have read at least 5 books, on their reading level, and log into their summer reading google classroom. In google classroom students will find an assignment due in September along with writing prompts and a rubric. The code for the summer reading classroom is 1amgfkj
  • For rising 7th graders, teachers also expect students to read at least 5 books and to log into a customized summer reading Google classroom. This site will offer an extensive reading list, and an assignment that is due digitally (or may be handed in) by the first day of school in September. Students must complete two reading responses for any 2 of the 5 books they finish.  The code to access the google classroom is abx2agd. This will count as their first project grade for their 7th grade year.
  • For rising 8th graders, teachers also expect students to read at least 5 books over the summer.  They must also complete one reading response for each book. Students must complete three reading responses for any 3 of the 5 books they finish.
