Summer Reading & Math

Middle School students are expected to read at least three books over the summer. These may be from the Middle School Summer Reading List, but they do not have to be. Please read the Middle School 2018 document for more specifics on Middle School reading assignments.

Incoming Middle School students have received their summer math assignments. For Incoming 6th grade students, refer to the Summer Math Reminders document for details. For incoming 7th and 8th grade students, refer to the Khan Academy Letter from Kerry Dorton, Assistant Head of School for Education.

Upper Elementary students are required to read three books over the summer and return to school in the fall with a project on their summer reading. Please see the UE Summer Reading List for details on summer reading assignments.

UE students are also required to keep up their math skills over the summer break. Incoming 4th years should continue practicing math facts. Incoming 5th years are required to complete a summer practice booklet. See the UE Math Letter for details.

We suggest that parents keep their children reading through the summer. Lower elementary children are at a very crucial time in their reading development. This Suggested Reading List will assist them in making appropriate choices. Summer reading at this level should be fun and entertaining.
