Dear OSMS Parents,
As we bring the 2012-2013 school year to a close, the teachers at Oliver Springs Middle School are already planning for next year. We are pleased and proud of the progress our students made this year and we are looking forward to building toward more achievement next year.
Over and over, research has shown that the best way to maintain the gains your student(s) made this year in English and Language Arts is to encourage them to read, read, read over the summer. To that end, the Roane County School district has provided a “Suggested Summer Reading List.” The books on this list were selected by English teachers and librarians across the county specifically for our students. Reading these books in particular is not required. However, we strongly recommend that your student read at least three books this summer.
Please use the attached Reading Log to keep track of the books read. We will have a school wide celebration for students who achieve the three book goal. Details on the celebration will come in August.
Principal, Oliver Springs Middle School
