Summer Reading

6th Grade / 2020-2021

Dear Students,

Welcome to POP MIDDLE SCHOOL! I am so excited to welcome you into 6th grade English for the upcoming school year! We do work hard, but we have a lot of fun, too. Lots of great things are in store!


Here is where you will find all of the information for Summer Reading. It does look a little different this year, so please read carefully and pay close attention! Our Summer Reading was put together by our Middle School team with great thought and for a purpose. Here is what you will be completing this summer in order to be prepared for the first few weeks of classes:


1. I Am Malala novel reading with packet

When deciding how you want to complete this section, you have 2 options:

A. Print the packet, fill it out by hand, and bring it with you on the first day of school.

B. Join my Summer Reading Google Classroom, complete the packet digitally, and submit it online by 8:00am on the first day of school. Our classroom code is: zfunzro


2. Read 2 nonfiction articles

These were selected by your Science and Social Studies teachers. What you read in these articles is what you will begin to study in their classes when school begins. There is no required work or packet for this section


3. "Fruits of the Spirit" Bible Study

Keep your faith alive this summer! The Bible Study will focus on the 9 Fruits of the Holy Spirit. These will be used throughout the first 9 weeks of school as a focus for your Religion class. I hope this encourages you to continue spending time with God each week of your summer break and growing closer to Him and his Word!



Happy Reading, and God Bless!

Ms. Atchley
