NEMS Summer Reading 2018

  • "Books are many things - lullabies for the weary, ointment for the wounded, armor for the fearful and nests for those in need of a home."

    ~Glenda Millard


    Summer is here, school is out, desks are empty, and locker doors are shut! While the end of school signals that wonderful feeling of release from homework, the "summer slide" can quickly set in. In order to avoid the "summer slide" (that time when your brain shuts down and you forget all that you learned in school throughout the year), you will be assigned a summer reading project. This summer, all incoming 7th & 8th graders are asked to choose a book to read at their appropriate reading level. Choose a book that interests you! These activities can be handwritten or typed.

  • Parents should be involved in the selection of their child's summer reading. 

    Please pre-approve your child's reading selections. Some titles may not be appropriate for your child since authors often write for a wide audience. Sometimes authors will address social issues or controversial topics and may use language or imagery that may not be acceptable to you. You have the flexibility to choose books with your child that reflect your values and morals.
