Wondering what they are reading?

Dear GMS Community Parents and Guardians: We encourage you to talk to your teens about their book choices. Our summer assignment allows for student choice. While we will show them lists, they are free to choose any book to enjoy. We hope this gets more students engaged in the summer work, and we encourage you to be involved.
