Summer Reading Update

I hope your long awaited summer break is off to a roaring start. This summer, as an incoming seventh grader, you are to read seven books, which can be a combination of audiobooks, novels, memoirs, and other specific genres. Within the first five days of summer break, I have already finished two books! The classic, A Wrinkle in Time and a modern mystery, The Woman in Cabin 10. What a treat to have some time to sit back, relax, and read. I do hope you find some great books to enjoy and share with all of us.

Be sure to watch one another’s book talks to get some ideas for your own personal reading, and remember you MUST read the books, Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen and The Code: The Five Secrets of Teen Success, by Mawi Asgedom.

Please reach out to me via email at jmchristiansen@cps.edu if you have any questions.
