Specific School Requirements for 2023

Collins Middle School –
Here are summer reading suggestions created by the American Library Association for students in Grades PreK-8 that will help you and your student select books together. As always, we suggest that you follow your child’s lead and choose books and topics that interest them.

Essex Tech – 
This year, all students are required to read at least two books. 
BOOK #1: The first book is an open-choice book and can be fiction or nonfiction, but must be written for young adults or adults. 
BOOK #2: Incoming Grade 9 students will read “Make Your Bed” by Admiral William H. McRaven.  Books may be purchased at amazon.combarnesandnoble.com, and in support of local businesses bookshop.org.
