As the 2016-17 school year draws to a close, it is a pleasure to present to you our 7th & 8th Grade suggested summer reading list for Summer 2017. Summer reading is an important activity for your child’s intellectual growth and development. It encourages students to continue learning while still providing them with fun and enjoyment. What helps make reading entertaining for children is allowing them the freedom to choose books that speak to their unique interests. The attached list was created with the assistance of the Teaching & Learning Department in collaboration with your child’s upcoming ELA teachers. This is a list of books that we think your child may enjoy. It also represents some of the best literature being read by adolescents today. Many of these books are award winning titles!
