Reading is a skill which means that it requires practice. The only way to get better at reading is to read. Because literacy is a focus here at Northside Middle School, we want to be sure that we have books available for your students to read. Our media specialist and teachers are sensitive to having appropriate reading materials for middle-grade students in our media center and classroom libraries. With that being said, what is considered "appropriate" may vary from one family to another. We want you to remain aware throughout the year of the books that your student has chosen to read and assist in gauging appropriateness.
If your child is a 6th or 8th grader here at NMS, he/she will bring home a contract for you to sign regarding book choice and reading assignments. Please sign these forms and return them to the teacher as soon as possible. The links for both forms are below.
