6-8 Summer Reading

 Middle School Assignments

Students entering Sixth through Eighth Grade this fall should read 3 books that are within their Lexile range, from 100 points below to 50 points above their Lexile score, or within the appropriate Lexile range for their grade. The Lexile score is found on the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) report, which was sent home to parents. 

Note: If your child’s Lexile score exceeds that of the Grade Level Lexile Band, then he or she should read texts either within his or her Lexile range, or within the appropriate Grade Level Lexile Band as outlined below. A Lexile measure is a good starting point for selecting books, but should never be the only factor when selecting reading material.

Students are strongly encouraged to read at least one piece of informational (non-fiction) text over the summer.  The Georgia Standards of Excellence adopted by Georgia place a much stronger emphasis on informational text, as it is more present in college and career reading. 

Assignment: All students will keep track of summer reading on a reading log that will be turned in to the homeroom teacher at the start of the 2017-2018 school year.


The Summer Reading Assignment will be counted as three homework grades (one grade per book read) and will be due on

August 18, 2017.
