Students need to have a book for their independent reading unit by tomorrow 9-16-16. They are choosing their own book for this unit. We spent time in the library selecting books yesterday. If a student brings in a book that is not found in the Millennium Middle School library, please bring in a note with the students name, the title of the book, and a signature giving them permission to read the book in class. This is to ensure that all students have selected books that are appropriate for their age and skill level.
