Summer Reading Program
The Silver Lakes Middle School Summer Reading Program is designed to encourage reading during the summer months to build fluency, vocabulary, and a passion for reading. As a part of the summer reading program, students are asked to read a novel (from the attached list or an individual choice) and complete a project for a grade for the 2015-16 school year. The summer reading project is due the second week of school on Friday, September 4, 2015. It should be turned in to the student's assigned reading teacher. All students, even those new to our school, are responsible for reading a book and completing a project.
