Fall 2016: selected resources for Fish in a Tree
Summer Reading Information (spring 2016)
This summer Pollard is again having a One School, One Book experience. The entire Pollard community -- students, teachers and staff -- will read Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt over the summer. Check out the book trailer on the left. We will explore the book as a community when we return to school in the fall.
All rising 7th and 8th graders should obtain a copy of the book over the summer. There are copies to check out in the Pollard and High Rock Libraries. The Needham Free Public Library also has multiple copies available. Copies may be purchased at Wellesley Books, New England Mobile Book Fair or from Amazon. This book should be widely available.
Pollard students will be required to read at least one additional book of their choice over the summer. A family letter and sign off sheet went home with rising 7th and 8th graders at the end of the school year. These forms can be accessed below:
