Sixth grade Starz and Thunderbolts: Choose two books from the suggested summer reading list.  For each book, complete a sixth grade summer reading handout.  Return these handouts to your language arts teacher in the fall!
Seventh grade Atlas and Spartans: Choose two books from the suggested summer reading list.  You will have an assignment when you return to school.
Eighth grade Odyssey and Explorers: Incoming eighth graders are required to read one non-fiction book of their choice over the summer.  This ONLY includes the non-fiction genres of biography, autobiography, self-help, history, religion, or how-to.
Shortly after the school year begins, students will be required to complete a book project explaining how their summer reading book informs and enhances their personal identity.

Remember: Kids are maturing at different rates.  Not every book is appropriate for every child at every age.  When choosing a book, use wisdom--do not read a book that is inappropriate for you or your family.  When choosing and reading a book, talk to your parent/guardian about what you are reading!
