TNT Summer Reading Program

8th Grade Summer reading program

All in-coming 8th grade TNT language arts students are required to read three (3) titles from the 8th grade reading list during the summer.  One title will be graded in the year-long language arts class, and two titles will be graded in the first semester Reading 8 class.

Reading of the novels will be checked based on Scholastic testing.  A book will not count if the test has been taken previously.

First semester testing will be completed by September 8.
