A key part of the growth and development for any child is finding a healthy balance between time for learning and time for rest and relaxation. Although summer is a great time for students to enjoy time with friends and family, it is important for young people to continue challenging their reading skills in order to benefit from its cumulative and long-term effects.
Our middle school teachers spend a great deal of time considering the most compelling and age-appropriate books for our students, which will both challenge their reading skills and help further their passions for stories across various genres. If you have any general questions about summer reading, please email associate head of school for academics Lisa Bruce. If you have grade-level specific questions, please contact the individual teacher.
