Summer Reading Lists

Summer reading lists are available for grades K-8. High school reading lists are posted on the school websites.

Research tells us that the more a student reads, the more he/she will achieve. The purpose of summer reading is to encourage students to read (or have read aloud to them) a text that builds knowledge for future learning and strengthens skills necessary for students to be successful readers. The following books were chosen based on many criteria, including reading level, connections to future ELA content, student interest, and more. 

Students can choose one book to read over the summer from the grade-level list below, but this is not required.
