Dear Cyrus Peirce Middle School Parents and Students:
Welcome to Summer Reading 2023!All students at CPS will read a book of their choice and complete the attached graphic organizer.
***Students will be responsible for getting their own books for summer reading.***
Local options for obtaining the books: *CPS Library (there will be hours over the summer - see below) *E-books/Audio books through the CPS library website (SORA app) *Nantucket Atheneum and Overdrive through the Atheneum (students will need their library card number). *Bookworks and Mitchell’s (CPS students will receive a 20% discount)
Many thanks to Wendy Hudson and the Staff of Nantucket Book Partners for helping to offset the cost of books for our students.

1. Get your copy of your choice book. You are responsible for buying or borrowing a copy of the book you select. ***Be sure to give Nantucket Book Partners ample time if you plan to order a book through them.*** Reach out to Mrs. Hickman if you need assistance.
6. Turn in your completed graphic organizer to your English teacher by Friday, September 8, 2023.
Links for book suggestions will be on the CPS Homepage and the CPS/NHS Library webpage. We believe that students should find a book with which they can connect and enjoy. We strongly encourage students to challenge themselves, and recommend that parents get involved and guide their children in making a good choice. The Nantucket Book Partners website is a great resource, where you will find book summaries, reviews and access to online ordering. You may also visit Bookworks or Mitchell’s to purchase the book, or the Nantucket Atheneum to borrow a copy. If you are having trouble finding a book, and/or getting a book, please reach out to Mrs. Hickman for assistance. Your participation in the CPS Summer Reading Program is essential to starting off the school year on a positive note!
Parents: Need some tips and tricks to keep your child motivated to read? Click here for a great blog post by Pernille Ripp, 7th grade teacher and author, “How to Help Your Child Love Reading Over the Summer.” While the article was written in 2016, the message is still relevant today.
We want to thank our students as they continue to commit themselves to being lifelong learners – individuals who never stop questioning the world through language and imagination.
