Dover-Sherborn Middle School

A major goal of the middle school English program is to encourage pleasurable and thoughtful reading of a variety of selections by outstanding writers. Summer months are an excellent time to dive into a good book and explore something that interests you.

Given the challenges facing students and their families right now, we will not place specific expectations and requirements for your reading this summer. Instead, we hope that you will use the time to seek out new titles, authors, genres and formats.

We encourage you to read as many books as possible over the next few months, with a goal of completing at least two. Keep track and share with us next fall. We are excited to learn from you, too!

Please refer to Ms. Woodward’s website for additional recommendations for incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Students may also email their teachers for ideas and review their book suggestions in this letter. Have a great summer! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Happy reading,

Dover Sherborn Middle School English Teachers
