HCMS Independent Reading Program

HCMS Independent Reading Program

HCMS is a school that reads.  We believe the best pathway to academic success involves reading engaging texts on students’ reading level every night.  For 6th, 7th and 8th grade, students are expected to read 6 independent reading novels by the end of the school year.  Middle school students should be reading 25-30 minutes each night and this is tracked in their ELA classes.  HCMS students are also responsible for responding in writing to their novels once a week in their Thought Logs.
