Summer Reading


Summer is a great time to read! The entire SSM community is encouraged to continue their good reading habits during the summer months. SSM Librarian, Mr. K, has put together recommended reading lists for middle school and high school levels. Many of these books are recent award winners and have received starred reviews. Relax, there’s no test and no requirement as to a number of books you must read. We just want to encourage you to read and enjoy great books. Treat yourself to some good reading this summer!
