Entering 4th Grade

The designated summer reading books for students entering fourth grade are:
  • Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan
  • The Sword in the Tree by Clyde Robert Bulla

These books were included in your book fees at enrollment/re-enrollment and can be picked up in the front office of either campus after enrollment/re-enrollment is complete through Admissions.

Students entering 4th grade are asked to annotate their books. Students need to make a minimum of 10 notations for each category. The annotations will constitute your child’s first reading grades of the year. A guide to annotating is available below. These books will also be the source of discussion during the first couple of weeks of school.

Curl Up With a Good Book This Summer!

While we are requiring your child to read two books, we encourage him/her to read all throughout the summer.  Below is a list of grade-level books that your child may enjoy. This will be a great introduction to the reading your child will do throughout the year.
