Summer Reading Letter to Parents:

We are very excited to announce our summer reading program here at Pittsgrove Township School District. While summer is a time for students to relax and participate in recreational activities with friends, it should also be a time to entertain oneself with a great book.
The summer season presents the opportunity for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. It is also the ideal time to support the literacy skills of our students while fostering a community of readers in our schools. Studies have shown that when children read each day, they increase their vocabulary development, build fluency, and improve their comprehension skills. If children do not read during the summer months, they will lose a great deal of progress made
during the school year. Children who read during the summer start school ready to continue their progress.
Throughout this summer, our middle school students will read and enjoy one or two books. Specific book lists and assignments for each grade level can be found on the PTMS Media Center website. Additionally, students have been
given their specific assignment and grade level book list from their current English teacher. Completed summer reading assignments are due the first week of school. The summer reading program is a course requirement for your child’s English Language Arts class.

 Should you have any questions about our summer reading program, please contact our Library Media Center Specialist, Ms. Jessica Downer (

Please add summer reading to your child’s list of adventures to experience and enjoy during this time of year. I wish you and your family a safe and rejuvenating summer season.
