OLF Required Summer Reading 2023  

This year students entering grades 5th - 8th will be required to read an assigned novel during the summer prior to the first day of school.  This novel should be read independently by the student. Please note that assigned novels will need to be purchased by parents at a local bookstore, ordered online, or checked out from the public library. During the first week of school, students will be completing various projects and a writing assignment on the assigned novel.  Students may choose if they would like to take the AR test on their assigned summer novel for Mrs. Soignier’s summer reading incentives. It will not be counted towards their Q1 required AR points.
