5th Grade - Summer Work & Supply List

5th Grade – Summer Work & Supply List

In an effort to promote summer reading 5th grade students are encouraged to read as many books as they would like, but they are required to read ONE book from the list included in this letter.  They will also be required to complete the attached assignment and have it ready for the first day of school.  This assignment will be graded.

We thank you for supporting our summer reading program.  We anticipate that reading throughout the summer will broaden students’ knowledge, sharpen their skills and allow them the pleasure of getting lost in a good book!

Summer Reading List

  • Some Kind of Pride, Maria Testa
  • Catch That Pass, Matt Christopher
  • A Handful of Stars, Cynthia Lord
  • Phantom Tollbooth, Norton Juster
