Dear Students and Parents:As decided last year, we’ve made two significant changes to our summer readingprogram:1) We combined our previous 6, 7, and 8th-grade lists into one larger middle school list.Through much trial and error over the past few years, we realized that a reading list,which requires students to choose from a narrow grade-level list, was too limiting. It ishard to say any single book title is appropriate solely for a single grade level. Reading isabout branching out and choosing those books that seem just right for you.At the same time some guidance can be helpful, so we’ve broken the list down intodistinct genre categories and included a brief summary of each book. More than anything,however, we strongly urge parents to take an active role and help their kids make goodreading choices. Take into consideration each child’s reading maturity and interests.2) We removed the requirement that students do any kind of written assignment duringthe summer months. In the past, many parents as well as students remarked that thepleasure was taken out of their summer reading experiences by additional academic workthat made them feel like they were back in the classroom again and not necessarilyreading purely for pleasure.In sum, whether you are on the threshold of your 6th, 7th, or 8th-grade school year,please read a minimum of two books from the list and be prepared to discuss or writeabout one of these two books during the first few weeks of school. If possible, bring toschool a copy of one of the books you read. Additionally, we ask that you fill out thebrief parent sign-off form (link above) as well.As always, we look forward to down time this summer to relax and read more than wetypically can during our busy school year.Sincerely,English Teachers, Grade 6, 7, 8Alma Ramos-McDermottLibrary Media Specialist1
