Last May, every 5th, 6th, and 7th grade student checked out a book from a teacher selected list. Over the summer, students and teachers were charged with reading their books. Friday, students and teachers met together to discuss those books. Each group was given 90 minutes to discuss their book, and then to create a project based on their books.The program brings students and teachers together and opens the year with a positive focus on reading and literacy.
