Middle School Summer Reading


Summer reading for 2019 is here!

This summer, every student will read the young readers version of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba (ISBN: 9780147510426). This book tells the amazing true story of a boy from Malawi who designed and built a windmill to bring electricity and water to his family’s farm.

Rising 7th and 8th graders will also sign up for a faculty or student-sponsored reading group.

In addition:

Rising 7th graders are required to read The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton (ASIN: B00ES28IPK). 7th grade students should be prepared to start the year with a unit on the required reading in their English classes.

8th grade students are required to read a third book of their choice. See the 2019 Summer Reading Guide for more information.
