Make the most of quiet time this summer! Ms. Suits has compiled a list of books that your student may enjoy and will reward new and returning students who have read from these recommended titles before school begins in August. 

This is a great opportunity for your incoming 6th Grader to get acquainted with DMS Media Center Specialist Ms. Suits, and to learn more about the programming she will be offering throughout the year. 

Read one book from either list, earn a certificate and treat at lunch

Read two books from either list, earn a certificate and a giant candy bar

Read three books from either list, earn a certificate and and get an invitation to the
Media Center Ice Cream Party when school starts in the Fall.
