Summer Reading List

Innovation Middle School

2019-2020 SUMMER READING LIST

Research has shown that reading during the summer is critical in developing and maintaining reading skills. For this purpose, Innovation Middle School strongly encourages students to actively read in the summer.

We want each student to read at least two books, either from this list or the 2019/2020 SSYRA Grade 6-8 list.
