MA Summer Reading List ‘17 

We do not want your child to lose the wonderful reading skills they have developed this school year.  Therefore, we are requiring each student going into Second through Sixth Grades to read TWO books during the summer.  The following list will give the author of the book, the title, the book reading level, and the point value.  Please use the book level and point value as a guideline in choosing an appropriate book for your child.

Make sure that your child is prepared to take an Accelerated Reader Test on these books when they return to school or during the scheduled Summer Test Dates (see below).
