Reading Lists - Summer 2014

We are very excited to announce the RPS Summer of 2014 Reading Lists. These lists contain suggested book titles, authors, and series for students to read during the summer. We are most pleased to be partnering with the Richmond Public Library and the Washington Redskins this summer in an attempt to encourage our students to "Find 15 minutes every day and just READ!"Teachers and Library Media Specialists will share the summer reading plan and reading lists with our students; the public library will share our lists as well.
