Summer Reading Letter and Assignment

Summer 2017

 

Greetings future seventh graders and a happy summer to you!Cool

 

I can’t wait to meet you all in the fall. Until then, I would like you to keep your reading skills in shape this summer by completing a required summer reading assignment.  Your parents should also approve your selection. Please avoid reading The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton and Schooled by Gordan Korman, as we will study these texts in class. Although only one book is required to complete the assignment, my sincere wish is that you will challenge yourself to read many books this summer. Reading can transport you to another time and place and permit you experiences beyond your own imagination! Indulge in reading this summer!

Read, read, read and then, read some more. Enjoy!

If you have any questions regarding this assignment over the summer, please contact me directly at  lburk@hollandschool.org.  Please do not contact the school office. Have a wonderful summer!

 

Regards,

 Mrs. Laura Burke

 

If you are having trouble deciding on an appropriate book, the local librarian can be an excellent resource. Staff at bookstores are often very informed on current books that middle school readers will enjoy. Suggested reading lists can also be found online, but be sure to search along with a parent or guardian who can help you make smart choices.  A parent should approve your reading selection.
