Summer Reading for Students Entering 1st through 8th Grades 

Summer is here and we are all excited about it!  It is also a time to keep working and maintaining our well established reading habits.  At Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, we would like our students to maintain the continuity and progress they have made with the Accelerated Reader Program and continue to read over the summer.

Students entering 1st through 5th Grades are required to read 3 books.  One mandatory book (listed below) and two books, Accelerated Reader testable, of the students choosing.

Students entering 6th through 8th Grades are required to read one mandatory book (listed below) and one Accelerated Reader testable book of their choice.

 All students must be ready to test on the mandatory book.
