Marcellus Central Schools
2018 Summer Reading Requirement
Dear MCS Parents and Students,
To promote lifelong reading and maintain literacy skills, students in grades 6-12 will be required to read a text this summer from a list provided by the district. Each student is to complete the provided graphic organizer as they read, and this will be collected 1-2 weeks into the new school year.
Please note that all of the texts on the lists have strong literary merit; they do, however, vary in both text complexity and maturity of content. Therefore, parents should work with their student to decide upon an appropriate title prior to making a text selection. Reviewing the texts by visiting either the Amazon or Barnes and Noble website would be beneficial.
The summer reading lists can be found on the district website and at the Marcellus Free Library. If acquiring a text is a hardship for your family, please contact the Main Office so we can help accommodate your needs.
We hope the assigned summer read will be one of many books your child will read this summer. Thank you for supporting our efforts to promote a culture that values reading.
