Also, every student in Grades 5-8 were to choose a book to read this summer. It is very important that you continue to read at least 30 minutes per day. Reading is a very portable endeavor, so it’s easy to take out into the yard, in the car, on vacation, or at home.  Please try to challenge yourself and read at, or slightly above, your grade/age level.  Do not “reread” books from last year as they will not challenge your ability to comprehend more difficult text. Take your time and enjoy the process. Reading can transport you to different places, time periods, and on fascinating adventures. Find something that interests you and go for it!
