• Dear Jr. High Parents,
    We would like to inform you about our summer reading requirements for Junior High students. This is a mandatory reading assignment, because we want to encourage our students to get ahead of the game before students begin school in the fall. The assignment is to read 2 books from the BOB list. Even though we have silent reading on an almost daily basis, the students are always encouraged to read on their own. We have attached our Battle of the Books list for next year. Reading any of the following books, along with completing a book report (form to be used follows this letter) will be counted in the Reading Grade for the first trimester. 
     
    You may read two AR books, complete two book reports, or you may do one of each. Books that are listed on our Accelerated Reading Book list can also be used toward their AR grade for the first trimester. Books that are starred are included in the Accelerated Reading test list. In compliance with Common Core Standards, we have included several non-Fiction books, as well as fiction.
