Summer Reading Project!
Welcome readers and writers! We look forward to working with you during the
next school year. While this year’s summer reading project is optional, we believe
that reading one (or more) books this summer will help support your transition to
the next grade level. This project is due August 19, 2022, and will not be graded.
We look forward to celebrating your work when we return in the fall!
