Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year/Summer Reading Program!

Hello all!

I’m not sure if this message will get to you before tonight’s meeting, but just a reminder that all incoming 8th graders should report to the CMSA cafeteria by 7 pm tonight to get their books and reading materials. I have also posted a practice post on the forum (www.8thgradela.proboards.com) that might be worth an extra credit point…hint hint!

Below, I have copied the calendar and relevant reading assignments. I will be posting updates weekly both here and to the forum, so keep and eye out for these things. Feel free to email me at any time over the summer with questions, comments, concerns, issues, or just cool stuff you’re thinking about.

I am also compiling a spreadsheet of parent/guardian contact information as well as email addresses of students so that we can communicate more effectively. If you picked up your books early, please make sure to email me this information as soon as you can.

I look forward to working with you all this summer! Can’t wait to see how you like these books 🙂 Fair warning: they will be challenging, but I hope that they will also be enjoyable.
