“Get a Head Start on September” Summer Reading

for incoming Glenbrook 6th Graders

All incoming 6th grade students will be expected to have read Hatchet by Gary Paulsen by Monday, September 11, 2023.  The book is 181 pages, so starting it (or reading the whole thing) before school starts will make the beginning of the school year easier.  There is a big writing assignment that goes along with the book, so make sure to “get a head start on September!”

The paperback version of the book can be purchased for a list price of $8.99.  Hatchet is a commonly read book for middle school students and is typically available in public libraries.  Check with your local library if you’d like to check out a copy. 

If you have any questions about this requirement, contact dbrewster@longmeadow.k12.ma.us.

Longmeadow Public Schools is pleased to provide the students and families of Longmeadow with a K-8 Student Handbook that articulates parent and student rights and responsibilities and serves as a disciplinary code of conduct. We believe that this handbook is a reflection of our deep commitment to establishing safe, supportive, and orderly learning environments where the expectations for staff and students are clear and widely understood. Additionally, we view this handbook as a reflection of the District’s firm and enduring commitment to creating schools that are welcoming, inclusive and free from discrimination, harassment and bullying. We hope that this document serves our families as a valuable reference and guide to the statutes, regulations, policies and practices that govern the operation of our schools. 

The 2020-2021 Handbook is available on the GMS  Website under the Parents and Students tabs or at this link.
