Summer Reading Project 2014-For Incoming 7th Graders

Attached you will find the material we kindly ask you to review and read.  This assignment is for students who will be attending as new 7th graders in September. ALL, incoming 7th graders are expected to have read several books over the summer and from those choose one to create a visual prop and oral presentation. This is not a book report, please look over the material carefully.  The second week of school all students will give this presentation to peers in their language arts class. Through this we hope to get to know each other through what we read.

This work is due on the second day of school and should reflect rigor and depth of thought.  Click here for assignment details.

Important resources for our students and families

  • College Success Foundation - College Bound Scholarship guides low-income 7th and 8th graders on the path to a college education by offering the promise of tuition when the student reaches college age if the student keeps up his or her grades and stays crime-free. The College Success Foundation, in partnership with the state of Washington, the Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB), and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, actively works with students and families throughout the state to get them to sign up and provide college readiness support in selected school districts.

  • Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board
