Summer Reading for HMS Students
All rising 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are expected to read one fiction or non-fiction book of choice over the summer. Upon returning to school, students will complete an assignment that will assess their understanding of their book within the first or second week.
FCPS does not have a suggested book list; however, on the Fairfax County library website, there is a list of suggested authors for grades 6-8. Students and parents are recommended to select a book of choice that reflects their child’s current reading ability and interest level. Books can purchased but can also be borrowed through the county’s public libraries or accessed through students’ MyOn accounts.
