Incoming 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Summer Reading

Hi Everyone!  This is the summer reading assignment for both Mrs. Elliott's and Mrs. Janaskie's classes.  We hope you have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing all of you in August.  Until then--keep reading!!!


All middle school students are asked to read one required novel and one free choice selection for the summer.  In addition to the reading, students will complete a short assignment for each book.

Required novel:  My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George.  

After you finish reading the novel, please print the attached sheet, answer the questions, and bring the completed questions to school by Friday, September 1, 2017. You may handwrite or type your responses.  Also, be sure to come prepared to discuss the book in class when you return.
