Dear Middle School Students and Parents,
There’s no break like summer break! July and August are great months to relax, enjoy the sunshine, and relish the joy of learning and imagining through reading.
Browse through our book lists under the Windows & Mirrors tab on the banner on the very top of this page. Select whatever seems interesting to you, but try to pick at least one window book (where the main characters, setting or action is different from you) and one mirror book (where the main characters, setting or action is familiar to you). Mirror texts validate our feelings because they reflect our own lives and identities, and window texts build empathy by offering glimpses of experiences different from our own.
If you would like a personalized reading list, as well, email Ms. Livingston.
With an interesting book in hand, a tall glass of lemonade, and a shady tree, you'll be set to embark on a new reading adventure.
