Summer Reading

Grades K-5

2024-2025 Academic Year

 

To foster a love for reading and promote intellectual growth, the administration and school faculty encourage our students to keep up with their reading activities during summer vacation. Frequent reading correlates with improved vocabulary, writing skills, and test scores. To help with this encouragement, we have created grade-level-appropriate reading assignments.

This year, we have included a list of recommended books for each grade level in addition to the required reading lists.

Students will complete assignments and assessments for the required reading during the first weeks of classes. 

 

Furthermore, students must complete the incoming grade-level Summer Bridge Workbook. The workbook can be purchased by clicking the link and purchasing the appropriate grade-level workbook.
