Golden Ring Middle SchoolSummer Reading Project

 Read What You Love

 Summer reading helps to improve students’ reading stamina, comprehension, and confidence. Most importantly, summer reading inspires students to develop a lifelong love of reading. This summer, Golden Ring encourages you to read what they love: any genre, any medium, any style. By allowing you to select your own reading, our hope is that you will continue to grow throughout the summer months as you read for enjoyment, read to preview upcoming texts, and read to travel to the destiny of your choosing.
