Summer READING for Students Entering Grades K-8

Seeing how summer reading is associated with higher achievement, here are our plans at St. Louise School for required summer reading this June through August:


  • St. Louise students entering grades K-5 are strongly ENCOURAGED to do summer reading.
  • St. Louise students entering grades 6-8 are REQUIRED to do summer reading of specific novels.


For students entering grades K-5, below you'll find suggestions for summer reading - recommended books, authors, and online resources. Your teachers suggest you read 20 minutes a day this summer. That doesn't have to be 20 minutes straight; but it should be 20 minutes as a minimum daily total.

For students entering grades 6-8, Mrs. Patterson and Mr. Gallant have prepared lists of specific novels from which you will choose for summer reading. The teachers have also developed written assignments, to be completed after the reading and due on the first day of language arts class in September. Find your reading list and written assignment by opening the link. Please don't wait until mid/late-August to start your reading, as not only will some books not be available to check-out at the library or purchase by then, but it may take longer than you think to read through some novels. Start your summer reading the same time summer officially begins - in June!
