The Best Summer Reading Books by PSS Students

The Best Summer Reading Books
Park Street School Students award medals to their favorite summer reading selections.

One of the delights of summer vacation for students of all ages is the opportunity to read wonderful books.  The choices and options can seem endless! Park Street School students in grades 2 – 6 reviewed their summer reading lists that invite them to explore wonderful books, many of which will enrich their learning for the coming school year.  This past summer, our students were asked to select their favorite books from their Park Street School summer reading list and award them Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards.

Students in Grades 2 – 6 are delighted to share their results and hope that other students will enjoy them as much as they did!
