All 2017-2018 BCMS students are encouraged to read over the summer. Below, you will find a list of books recommended for each grade level at BCMS. Research indicates that reading for even a few minutes a day significantly increase a child's reading ability. We hope that you will take the time to identify the books that will engage your children and help them find their summer reading experience most enjoyable. Our media center has several copies of each of the books listed below. If you are unable to obtain a book, please stop by the school to check one out. The books will need to be returned at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. All students are encouraged to read a book over the summer and complete a summary of the book for extra credit during the 17-18 school year. Thanks and happy reading!
