Summer Read 10 Challenge: see the sidebar to learn how to sign up for this optional summer reading challenge.
Rising fifth graders: Students are required to read three books from the Summer Battle of the Books list over the summer vacation, but they are encouraged to read more. The more books they read, the better able they will be to help their team. In the fall, students will be placed in groups for the Battle of the Books competition. This consists of students being asked all types of questions about each book on the list. The winning team will receive a special treat during school! Students will also complete a project on a chosen summer reading book.
Fifth graders must read at least three books from the fifth-grade list. Do not choose books from the 6th–8th grade list.
