Dear Sixth Grade Parents,
In preparation for September of 2021, I would like to inform you that Hammonton School District has a required summer reading and math program for its students:
The book chosen for incoming 7th grade students is Eleven, by Tom Rogers. Students are expected to read this story, and upon their return to school in September, teachers will engage students in novel-related discussions and projects. In addition, students should be prepared to take a test on the book. A copy of the book has generously been provided to all of our graduates, courtesy of the Waterford Township Home & School Association. (Please note that any student participating in HMS’s Project Enrich this summer will read the book during the program.)
Students are also required to complete the attached summer math packet. This packet is due on the second day of school, and a quiz will be administered soon after. You can also access the packet by clicking here.
Should you have any further questions, please contact: Mr. Lewis Testa (Supervisor of Language Arts/Social Studies): (609) 567-7007, ext. 287, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Mr. Michael Walsh (Supervisor of Math/Science): (609) 567-7000, ext. 372, email@example.com.
Thank you for your support of the Waterford Township School District, and I wish your child continued success at Hammonton Middle School.
Julie C. Lyons
Director of Elementary Education
