2022 Summer Reading List (Grades 6-8)

Dear WACS Families,

All students entering sixth, seventh, and eighth grade are required to participate in summer reading. Students will be expected to read the grade level novel listed below.

Although you will not have projects or written assignments to complete during the break, be prepared to engage in class discussion, complete novel activities, and take a novel assessment based on the book during the first week of school.

All of these novels are available at your local library, but we encourage you to purchase your own copy.

In addition, this summer reading novel will be your first entry into our 2022-2023 gradebook. More information about quiz dates will be sent home during the first week of school. Until then, Happy Reading!
