SVMS is committed to curbing the summer slide. SVMS promotes summer reading. All rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students must read one book off the summer reading list (see Quick Link above). They will take a quiz on the chosen book upon returning to school in August. The list provides information about the book’s genre, a short description, the number of pages, and the reading level. Students who will be enrolled in English I must read Animal Farm by George Orwell. That is the only book required of English I students.

This is an opportunity for family members, teachers, and community members.
