Lower School Summer Reading

The summer reading assignment for each grade level is at the top of each summer reading list. Consider the books on the lists as suggestions for summer reading. Students may read any age-appropriate book, even if it is not on the list. A record of books completed should be given to your homeroom teacher during the first week of school. Print the book lists and the reading record from the "Summer Reading Lists" section.
