Summer Reading Project 2014-2015 School Year

Research shows that students can lose up to a year of school progress over summer break.  In an effort to keep our students' minds sharp we require summer reading assignments.  Teachers distributed these assignments to students at the end of the school year.  The middle school summer reading project is also posted below.  The goal is that students read a book that is enjoyable and complete a short comprehension assignment.  These assignments are due back at the beginning of next school year.
