Summer Reading & Math Activities
for Rising 7th Graders at Rugby Middle School
Required Summer Reading: The Brooklyn Nine
In order to continue supporting literacy, rising 7th grade students are required to read the following book over the summer:
The Brooklyn Nine, a novel in nine innings by Alan Gratz.
We have chosen The Brooklyn Nine, a novel in nine innings because it is an exemplary piece of literature that students overwhelmingly enjoy reading. We will make meaningful thematic connections to this novel throughout the course of 7th grade and in particular during our Short Story Unit.
Copies of these books will be available in the front office at Rugby Middle School for check out on a first come, first served basis during the summer. These books may be checked out for a maximum of two weeks, and then must be returned for other students to use. Please be an advocate for your child’s education and prepare them for the 2014-15 school year!
