Silas Deane Middle School students did a fantastic job reading over the summer! 

Eighty four percent of SDMS students met or exceeded the minimum requirement of reading 3 - 4 books and turned in their 2016 summer reading logs! A total of 2,343 books were reported read by SDMS students this summer!

This is a great improvement from the summer of 2015 when SDMS's summer reading participation rate was 75%!

In addition, the following students reached for the stars and made our SDMS Top Ten Summer Readers List! Congratulations to these dedicated readers!

 4. Sophie Gustafson
 5. Emily MacDonald
 6. Taylor Wallowitz

The Wethersfield Public Library also reported that 105 SDMS seventh graders and 92 SDMS eighth graders participated in their Teen Summer Reading Program. Those participants read a total of 1,750 books! Alex Ginter was the lucky grand prize winner of a Samsung Nook Tablet!
