MLC's Summer Reading 2015: Read Every Day!
We are distributing MLC's summer reading information to students from June 5-June 12, 2015. Our goal for summer reading is to have students read for at least 20 minutes a day, 5-7 days per week over the summer. For every book they read (or for every five articles they read), students are eligible for a gift card raffle that we will hold in early September. All the information you need about summer reading is here; the underlined phrases are links to the documents!
- Summer reading letter (including the handy "quick guide to summer reading" )
- CT Governor's Summer Reading Challenge book lists: Grades 5-6 Grades 7-8 Grades 9-12
- Links to additional book lists
- Review Raffle Ticket templates: Front Back
- Tips and ideas for encouraging your child to read
The raffle review tickets are included in the summer reading letter. For each book or article read, your child should fill out one ticket. If your child reads more than six books or articles and you need more raffle tickets, you can print the tickets (provided above) or you can simply write them on index cards or small pieces of paper. Please be sure that all the same information is provided on any alternate raffle tickets your child creates after the first six!
IMPORTANT: Students in AP/DP classes AND incoming 10th grade students completing Personal Project may have more specific summer reading assignments. Students and parents should contact specific teachers or school counselors with questions. All summer reading is eligible for the raffle!
If you have any questions, please contact Suzanne Artis, school library/media specialist (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Emily Wright, MYP Coordinator (email@example.com).

An Education for the 21st Century
With the world as their classroom, students at the Metropolitan Learning Center for Global and International Studies prepare for success in college and careers in the global workforce. Much of the education in the school’s specially designed global-systems curriculum takes place beyond the classroom through MLC’s extensive study and travel abroad program.
