    Required Summer Reading Titles:       

    The Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum

    That Was Then, This Is Now, by S.E. Hinton

    Suggested Summer Reading Assignment:

    Wisdom, courage, and love are central themes in The Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum, and That Was Then, This Is Now, by S.E. Hinton. These themes are also a vital part of our everyday lives and emotional/spiritual well-being.  Think about these themes as they appear in the summer reading and the characters’ lives. Students may choose to take chapter notes for The Wizard of Oz and That Was Then, This Is Now using this graphic organizer: Summer Reading Graphic Organizer. Students may take note of examples in the texts of characters demonstrating wisdom, courage, and/or love. Use the graphic organizer to record specific quotes (include page numbers) and plot points.

    Summer Reading Book Discussion:

    All incoming 7th grade students are welcome to join Ms. Skolnik, Mr. Romero, and Mr. Koondel on Zoom for a book discussion of The Wizard of Oz and That Was Then, This Is Now.  Interested students should pick a session on Tuesday, August 24th at 7:30 PM or Wednesday, August 25th at 11 AM (no need to attend both sessions).  Zoom links will be provided through Canvas in August.
