Pass the quizzes with a 60 or higher. (You may only attempt the quiz a 2nd time if you score a 50 on your first attempt.
Sixth and seventh graders must read from the green list (for 6th grade) or the purple list (for 7th grade).
Eighth graders must read from the blue list or any book from our Young Adult section (if they have a YA permission form on file). The YA book can not be a movie, and it must have a quiz. Links to these lists are under the BOOK PARTIES tab.
SSYRA books are part of the booklists for ALL grade levels.
