School Summer Reading

Curtis Middle School

There is no required summer title, though students are expected to read at least three books. Massachusetts Children’s Book Award (MCBA) and Massachusetts Teen Choice Book Award (MTCBA) nominee lists are also a great source, and we have both collections of these titles available at Goodnow.

Use the following link for the ECMS Library Catalog for reading recommendations: Curtis Middle School
