In order for our students to maintain the skills acquired during the year and encourage good reading habits, we have compiled a list of novels for summer reading (links below). Reading should be a pleasurable activity for us all, and we hope to ignite and fuel a passion for reading in all of our students. If your child does not have a public library card, you may sign up online or find your closest public library to get a FREE library card. To continue enrichment during the summer, we are mandating all students from K-12 to read, and complete two book reports. In addition, they are required to work on the listed IXL/Khan Academy skills per week during the summer. See the recommended skills per grade by their teachers below. This will be part of their quarter 1 grades.

Reading: Students completed grades KG-5th are strongly encouraged to read throughout the summer. Whatever you decide to do this summer, keep a book nearby Insha’Allah. There are so many opportunities to read especially during, like waiting at a doctor’s office, riding in the car, on the plane, on rainy days, and in bed before drifting off to sleep. Reading is a good pastime and an entertaining way to learn.
