Summer Reading

A message from ROBINSON SEC

Dear Parents:

 

This summer, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) will continue a summer reading requirement in order to encourage reading. Each student completing grades five through eleven is required to read at least one book over the summer months. 

 

This summer at Robinson teachers, staff, and students will read together over the summer, and come back in the fall with a common book to discuss. This meaningful summer assignment will encourage reading, a critical skill, serve as a culture-building activity, and open a conversation among students, faculty, and staff for discussion and activities in the fall.

 

Both the MS and the HS books have commonalities:

 

Global Setting/Perspective

 

Dual Gender narrative

 

Range in Age and

 

Value in Education

 

Both books also have motifs that are:

 

Hopeful

 

Realistic

 

Meaningful and

 

Global

 

Reading is crucial to academic achievement, and I urge you to encourage your child to read many books, magazines, and newspaper articles over the summer months. I appreciate your help as we all work together to support the academic program at Robinson Secondary School.

 

Sincerely,

 

Matt Eline

Principal
