6th Grade Summer Reading

Hello, incoming 6th graders! I am so excited to meet you all. Over the summer, you will be required to read a novel of your choice (text only, no pictures) that is at least 100 pages long. Make sure you read closely as you will have an assignment associated with this novel when school begins. This novel must be brought to class on the first day of school. Please email me if you have any questions. Have a great summer!
