2018 Summer Reading

Silver Lake Regional Middle School

Welcome to our Summer Reading Page

Below is everything you need to know about our summer reading program.

How our books were placed on our summer reading list.

All current 7th and 8th-grade students were asked to recommend a book that they thought their peers would enjoy reading over the summer. This list was surveyed, looking for titles that were not on last year's summer reading list - a large number were from last year's list! This tells us that the students did a great job recommending books their peers would enjoy the previous year. We, however, could not repeat a book two years in a row so these books were eliminated as potentials. We then looked for books in different genres, different reading levels, and a mix of what would appeal to boys and girls. We are thrilled with our 2018 summer reading list and believe you will find a book to read that you will enjoy.
