Summer Reading

Ready for Summer Reading?

Don’t let summer slump set in! Keep your mind sharp with some exciting books that you won’t be able to put down!

All rising 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are required to read one novel from the 2021-22 SC Junior Book Award Nominee List.

Students will complete discussion questions using the Summer Reading Google Form prior to August 20th and should be prepared to discuss their book early in the school year.

Reading Tracking Form

All rising 6th-8th graders are asked to reflect on their reading using the tracking chart (feel free to make additional pages, entries, or copies as needed), and choose four of the reflection prompts provided at the end of this packet to reflect on your thinking.

Since the goal is to have our students reading throughout the summer, this assignment should not be started until the school year has ended. Students have between June 22 and August 20 to complete this chart. Students can make a digital copy of the form above (CLICK HERE) and share it with their homeroom teacher at the beginning of the school year via Google Drive. Students may also opt to complete this form by hand and turn a paper copy.


2021-22 SC Junior Book Award Nominees

Students can choose any book from this list to read for summer reading. The SCJBA nominees are a diverse collection of middle grade and young adult books geared to meet the needs and interests of students ages 11-14. These books are intended to address a variety of readers and families, and not every book will be a good fit. Families are encouraged to research the books and select titles with their student to ensure a good fit for their child and family. Click on each link to read a brief synopsis:
