Student reading a book

Summer Reading: Grades 6-8

While there is no specific summer reading requirement for students entering grades 6-8, we do encourage students to read throughout the summer for both enjoyment and to prevent the “summer slump” relative to literacy skills.

For additional information, feel free to read the message below from Jen Houlihan, Secondary Instructional Supervisor for English Language Arts, Reading, and Library Media.

Suggested titles

The list of recommended books below was compiled by our teachers and librarians across the district.  Every book on this list was carefully chosen to take into consideration the varied interests of our students.

You can also view this Google Slides presentation created by our middle school librarians, which gives an overview of each title.
