MPMS Summer Reading Program
All you have to do is go to the closest Public Library and register your child. The program this year is entitled Libraries Rock! From June 14th-August 17th. Then enjoy all the rewards offered during the summer program. After completing the program, students must keep the reading packet to show to their English teacher. During the first week of school, you child should bring in their Public Library summer reading log that has been signed by a Public Library employee.

Before you start reading, preview the writing activities attached to the guide. Then, choose at least two books to read this summer. Your goal is to read at least one fiction and one nonfiction book. For each book, you will complete one graphic organizer. For example, when you read a fiction book, you will complete a graphic organizer that is labeled ‘fiction.’ When you read a nonfiction book, you will complete a graphic organizer that is labeled ‘nonfiction.’ When you return to school in August, bring one completed fiction graphic organizer and one completed nonfiction graphic organizer. You do not have to complete the entire packet – you will have two graphic organizers to turn in.

Mrs. Haney had two of her former students she taught at Harrisburg Elementary, Garrett and Lemi, share about their life growing up in a small African village off the coast of Ethiopia. They compared a typical day in the life of an African child to life here in the United States. The students got to try an Ethiopian bread called Injera. They also were able to hand grind coffee beans. Coffee is very important in the Ethiopian culture and they hold coffee ceremonies two times a day. Mrs. Haney just finished reading the book Long Walk to Water which takes place in Africa , and her ALPS class did a nonfiction unit on Schools Around the World.
