Summer Reading Assignment
Dear Incoming Students, Parents and Guardians,
The English Language Arts Department at Joseph B. Cavallaro is excited to share this year’s Summer Reading Assignment with you. Please read through the entire packet to make sure you know what’s expected of you over the summer and the first week of classes next fall. This assignment is REQUIRED for ALL STUDENTS to complete.
In June, our 6th and 7th grade students received a bundle of books from their ELA teacher. The bundle contained 5 books for them to read, enjoy, and keep. In that bundle you will find the assigned summer reading book. We are asking that our incoming 6th graders read Wonder by R.J. Palacio, 7th grade The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan, and 8th grade Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan.
Your new ELA teachers will collect and grade your work in September, and it will count towards your trimester 1 grade. We wish you a very exciting summer and look forward to seeing you all here on Thursday September 5, 2019!
