Summer Reading

Do you want to get ahead on your 25 books for the 08-09 school year? Start here! We even have a form, which is optional, to help you keep up with your reading. You can download copies of that form here. You can also use our bookmark to help you keep up with reading and page numbers. Keep track of the page numbers, the dates you finish the books plus the title and author so you can get credit for all your summer reading. Get a parent signature for each book read as well. Happy summer reading! Note: While every book you read this summer will count toward your 25 book goal, there is no summer reading assignment.

Farewell 8th Graders

We're cleaning up, packing our rooms, and missing you already. It's been a wonderful year. Even during the last week of school we learned more about you when you shared your summer goals. Many of you have a busy summer ahead of you. Enjoy your break and good luck accomplishing all those goals.

Info about awards: If you were honored at the award ceremony, but didn't get your certificate, you may pick it up in the main office. The office is open Monday-Thursday from 7:00 am-3:00 pm.
