2014 - 2015 Sixth Grade Summer Reading Lists

All students entering the sixth grade are assigned summer reading.  There are two books to read.  The first book is required and the second is one that the students can choose from a given list.  The details of the two summer assignments follow.

Students can certainly read any of these books on an electronic device.  Books can also be borrowed from the public library, if available.  A copy of both books will be needed during the first two weeks of school  If your child will be reading these on an electronic device, please just drop me an email so that come August/September I will know to expect that device to come to school while we are working on the project.

I do hope that the selections below will pique the interest of all students.  Happy reading!
Mrs. Lee
