Newburyport Public Schools

Teachers have selected one required, curriculum-related reading assignment for each upcoming grade level (see grade level assignments below).  Books will be given to each student before s/he leaves for the summer.  Feel free to read along with your child, and discuss the story together.  In the fall, teachers will use this book for shared class reading and activities.

  Summer Reading  


Please have your child return their summer reading book when they come back to school in the fall. If you misplace your summer reading selection, we ask that a flat fee of $7 be remitted to replace the book for future summer reading sessions (please do not send in a replacement book). 


Library cards will not be issued in the fall to students who have not cleared missing books from their account. For students entering 4th grade, uncleared library accounts at Bresnahan will restrict check-out privileges at Molin. This includes summer reading materials. Contact one of the Media Specialists if you have any questions about your student's account.
