K-8 Summer 2023 Reading Program

Over the summer vacation, we would like our students to continue to read to enhance their reading skills.  Summer reading should be both pleasurable and thought-provoking.  Through this initiative, students will have an opportunity to meet their individual interests and needs through exposure to quality literature.   

2023 K-8 Summer Reading Program

This year, students will select a minimum of one book from the K-8 Reading List on the website by author Wendy Mass.  Ms. Mass is a New Jersey native who is a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-nine novels for young people.

Our students will have the opportunity to meet Ms. Mass at Newmark School on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, where she will be doing a workshop for all our K-8 students and autographing the books that they read over the summer.  After the workshop, our students will be required to write a letter to Ms. Mass based on their connection with the book they read over the summer.

Please have your child bring the book on the first day of school.

Your enthusiasm and encouragement will help make this summer reading an enjoyable experience.  Please call if you have any questions.  Have a great summer!
