Rising 6th and 7th Grade Summer Reading Lists
This summer, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) will continue a summer reading requirement in order to encourage reading.  Rising 6th and 7th grade students are required to read at least one FICTION book over the summer months. 6th graders going to Lake Braddock are required to complete the appropriate graphic organizer for English 7 or for English 7 Honors/AAC.   Follow-up activities have been developed by the teachers at Lake Braddock, and these will be implemented in the fall. Below is a link to the list of suggested books for summer reading; however, students may read any book that is comparable to books on this list and approved by their parents.  Reading is crucial to academic achievement, we urge you to encourage your child to read many books, magazines, and newspaper articles over the summer months.

Google Apps for Education -

FCPS Google Apps for Education (GAE) is an integrated communication and collaboration solution, hosted by Google and managed by FCPS.  GAE allows FCPS students to communicate, store files and collaborate with other students on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in real time from school or home. FCPS Google Apps is not accessible by anyone outside of FCPS, so your child will be able to work and collaborate in a safe and secure online environment. Please click the link above to read important information put out by FCPS about GAE. Cherry Run Parent Info Letter
