Summer Reading List

Ridgewood Middle School students are expected to READ over the summer. Our hope and expectation is that you will read at least three books over the summer. In September, be prepared to share and reflect on your reading experiences with teachers and other students. You can read any titles that you choose, but do check out our Literary Lineup of great books. Please also keep track of your reading by listing them on the reading log at the end of the slideshow or download it here.
