School Supply List!
Summer Reading Requirement
 Many studies have illustrated the importance of summer reading to help maintain skills during the 3 month break from school.  To help support that, GMS teachers have a summer reading requirement for all students.  In all cases it is just one book, but we would certainly encourage more than that.  The links below have more information on the required reading.  If you are looking for ideas for additional summer books, see the list under "Battle of the Books."

Summer Reading Requirement for Students Entering 6th
