Summer-Reading-at-the-BeachThe purpose of summer reading is to encourage a lifelong love of reading. By choosing books students will enjoy and by reinforcing and inviting students to practice their reading skills, we hope to engage and entertain as well as communicate the joys of participating in a lively, interactive community of fellow readers.

This page contains a link to the list of summer reading titles as well as links to the reading report forms and the sunshine state summer reading challenge. Each teacher carefully selected books to match the curriculum focus and enjoyment level of their particular grade.  Students will be introduced to many genres and some may even choose from non-fiction titles.  Our goal is to develop students who grow into adults with a lifelong love of reading.

View our 2017 Summer Reading List here!

Students may also choose a Sunshine State title from the 3-5 , or the 6-8  list (depending on their grade level) as their second choice.

Additionally, each grade level has fun (and required) summer reading projects to go along with the summer reading titles.  Those are listed in the links below as well.

Kindergarten – Second Grade Summer Reading Book Reports, one required 

Third – Fifth Grade Summer Reading Reports two required, one must be on the required reading title
