Preston Plains Summer Reading

Grab a book and read under a shady tree.  Lay out a blanket at the beach and read with the sand between your toes.  Swing in a hammock with a book that you just can't put down.  Read in the car, the train, the plane or the bus on the way to a vacation destination.  Curl up in a cozy chair on a rainy afternoon and devour a book.  READ, READ, READ, READ!

 
Students entering Preston Plains Middle School in September 2017 are required to read for at least four hours and to complete at least one book during that time.  Students will record their reading on the reading log in 20 minute intervals.

  • Students who return their reading log with 12 circles/4 hours of reading completed will receive 1 homework pass.
  • Students who return their reading log with 18 circles/6 hours of reading completed will receive 2 homework passes.
  • Students who return their reading log with 24 circles/8 hours or more of reading completed will receive 3 homework passes.

Required reading for PPMS

All students who will be attending PPMS in September should choose one of the 2018 Nutmeg Nominees to read over the summer.  There are lots of great books spanning genres and reading levels.  Upon returning to PPMS in the fall, students will be discussing their summer reading with their language arts teacher.  They will also be participating in activities related to their summer reading in the library.
