Summer Reading Program
Because we believe that strong reading and comprehension skills are essential to successful scholarship, all SMCMS students are required to read a minimum of three books during the summer months preceding sixth, seventh and eighth grade, as part of the reading/language arts curriculum.
A brief report on each book is to be prepared and handed in during the first week of school. This assignment is required and will be graded.
Books are chosen from the list of recommendations based upon the student’s lexile score, as determined through MAP testing.
