2015 Summer Reading Assignment

All Lost Mountain Middle School students are required to read two (2) books from the Scholastic recommended reading list below. Consider your reading based upon your Lexile level and upon what you’re interested in. Within the first two weeks of school, you’ll be required to turn in your reading journals (6th & 7th grade Reading teachers & 8th grade LA teachers). While you are on the school web site, we would like you to sign the summer reading pledge and tell us what books you will be reading. Happy reading!

Lost Mountain has partnered with the Daily Grind to introduce a fantastic new way to show teachers how much we appreciate them. Please encourage a teacher today. Buy them a lunch credit and they will know how much you really appreciate them. They will get a tasty lunch delivered to their school and the program will add $1 to a gift card of their choice. Very Important: Leave a note on their board and make their day (they will get this note emailed to them)!

Visit Teacher's Lunch Box to treat a teacher and learn more about this exciting new community partnership.
