Reading in the Middle School


Summer reading provides the opportunity for the members of each class to read one or two common books over the summer and return to school to discuss them with friends and classmates.  In addition, we encourage our students to read books for pure pleasure and to pursue their personal reading interests all summer long.  


“What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” — Anne Lamott
