At Grace, we believe in the importance of reading to the overall education of a child and in the importance of maintaining those reading skills throughout the summer months.  With this in mind, we require all of our students to participate in our summer reading plan.

We ask students who will be entering Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd grade to choose several of the books from their recommended reading list to read, along with their parents, over the summer.

Students who will be entering 3rd through 5th grades should choose at least three books from their recommended reading list and complete the Summer Reading Journal for three books.

Students who will be entering 6th or 7th grades must read one required book and choose at least two books from their recommended reading list and complete the Summer Reading Journal for three books.

Students who will be entering 8th grade must PURCHASE and read one required book and choose at least two books from their recommended reading list and write a one-paragraph summary for each book. Books will be used throughout the year in class.  

 

Students who will be entering 9th , 10th, 11th, and 12th grades will find specific instructions at the end of their reading lists.  

Instructions specific to each grade are listed in the corresponding links.  All reading lists and the Summer Reading Journal are found to the right.
