Parent(s) / Guardians:

 

Summer reading has always been a requirement at DCMS. Normally, we have an end of the year Book Fair where the summer reading books can be purchased, but time (and testing) just did not allow it this year. I am truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. I will have a limited number of each of the following titles that students may come and purchase from the library. The library price is listed next to the title. Please send cash if you’d like to purchase it from the school! J Copies will be available starting the week of April 17th. If you choose to get these books elsewhere, they should be easy to find, but I wouldn’t wait until late in the summer as they may all be gone by then.

 

You will find the choices for the 2017-2018 school year listed below. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns at jennifer.davis@dcsms.org.

 

Thanks and Happy Reading,

 

Jennifer Davis

DCMS Librarian
