~ WCMS Summer Reading 2019 ~
We are excited to announce the integration of our summer reading program and our new comprehensive, community-based character education program. Our new character education program will officially launch on October 8, 2019, during our annual Day One2 celebration. This new program will run throughout the entire school year and provide our students with an opportunity to explore diversity, acceptance, school spirit, and service.
In preparation for our work on Day One2, we are asking all students to read Harbor Me by Jacqueline Woodson. They may read this book in text or audio format. We also invite the entire Woodcliff Middle School community to read Harbor Me along with our students and teachers as we embark on this exciting journey.
Students are also required to read one additional Fiction or Nonfiction title for their ELA course. Each grade is provided with a comprehensive book list, (found below) encompassing various genres. These lists contain online elements to help students choose the right book for them.
Once your child has read the fiction or non-fiction book they chose, they should complete the note-taking document (in the form of a graphic organizer or short answer responses) associated with their grade. Students will be required to turn in this document to their ELA teachers at the beginning of the school year to be graded.
*Students are permitted to use audiobooks along with the text, if preferred*
In an effort to help save the environment, we will not be distributing paper packets of the book lists. Click on the links below for the book lists and assignments pertaining to your child’s grade:
