Summer is a time for relaxation, spending time with family, and renewing friendships. It is also a time for our students to reflect on the lessons learned throughout the school year and to renew their commitment to be lifelong learners. As each student in Levittown has made individual strides throughout the school year, it is imperative that the students remain on this learning path, especially during the summer months. Current research shows that the average student will lose approximately one month of instruction during the summer break. To avoid this loss, it is imperative that students read over the summer to maintain comprehension and vocabulary skills, as well as to strengthen their ability to analyze information and think critically.

We have also added a 21st Century learning experience for incoming 6th to 12th graders where students have the opportunity to blog their ideas and thoughts about the book they are reading with other students in the Levittown School District.

Students entering grades 5-8 also have an opportunity to creatively engage with the dynamic websites found on the home pages for each school, as well as on the links at the right of this page.

It is mandatory for all students to read the book assigned to their grade level as this book will become the anchor text for the fall and will be used for lessons and activities when the students return to school in the fall.

Each student entering grades 5-12 is expected to read the book assigned to him/her. The assigned book list is as follows:

Entering Grade 5: Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein

Entering Grades 6,7,8: Pay It Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Entering Grade 9: Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Entering Grade 10: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

Entering Grade 11: A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah

Entering Grade 12: Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

**Students entering grade 5 are invited to explore the interactive website found on the link to the right.

**Students entering grades 6,7,8 are invited to explore the interactive website found on the link to the right.

**Students entering grades 9, 10,11,12 are invited to join the Blogging Site found on the link to the right.
