Even though it is summer we want all students at BMS to be prepared for the upcoming school year. The easiest way to accomplish this goal is to ensure that all BMS students read at least two books over the summer. Scientific research has been conducted that shows students lose academic knowledge over the summer months (it’s called the Summer Slide). The easiest way to combat this loss of knowledge is to simply read books. To encourage all students to foster a love of learning and reading it is expected that over the summer all students read one grade level fiction book of their choice* and one grade level nonfiction book.

    Directions: All BMS Students (including 8th grade English Honors I) are expected to complete the summer reading assignment.

    Students will select...
    - one on-grade level fiction* novel
    - one on-grade level nonfiction (informational text)

    *Rising 8th Grade English Honors I ONLY – Fiction Novel has to be The Giver.
    Read the two books over the summer and complete this Google Form (see link below) twice...once for EACH

    Due Date: The Summer Reading Assignment is due three weeks after the start of the school year (September 7, 2022).
