Slide of multi-toned yellow and orange sun graphic wearing black sunglassesIn order to support the academic rigor we require during the school year, we are continuing with a mandatory summer reading activity for all students attending John Griffin Middle School.

Students are required to read one book from the attached choices for the 2020–2021 academic year. You may check them out from the public library, or you may even have some in your home.  We also have a large number of copies available for checkout from our school office.

Beginning October 1st, 2020 your child will share information about the book with his or her ELA teacher and classmates and present his or her book product. Encourage your child to note interesting characters, important themes, and memorable events from the reading.

Thank you for your support. This effort will ensure our students are challenged academically as we continue to strive for excellence.

If this causes a financial hardship or if you have any questions, please contact our office at 424-7678.
