Jumpstart Reading 2018

Hawks Soar Through Jumpstart Reading Opportunities, 2018-2019



Mill Creek’s Language Arts Department encourages everyone to continue reading through the summer months. Reading helps review essential skills for the upcoming semester, begins the bridge from one grade-level to the next, and provides baseline data for the upcoming school year. Reading, also, can improve your health.

According to studies compiled by Book Insider (2017) , reading can:

Even more, reading during the summer can reduce “summer slide.” Students who don’t read,  or read infrequently during their summer vacation, see their reading abilities stagnate or decline. However, “summer slide” can be avoided if you read during the summer months.  In fact, the more engaged you are in the text, the more you comprehend, and the more your critical reading skills improve.

So, what will you read? Below, you will find links to each course’s jumpstart opportunity. This opportunity can help you get ahead on the first assignment of the school year and will be used for the first in-class writing assignment. We strongly encourage you to start this over the summer but it will also be assigned the first day of school and will be due within the first few weeks of school.

Before committing to a book, please peruse the book reviews and review the content with your parents. Make sure the book piques your interest and is appropriate for you.  If none of the books on the list meets your family’s preferences, please contact Department Chairperson Kaysheila Mitchell to discuss an alternate title.

Also, remember, this is not a collaborative assignment. The jumpstart assignment is an individual assessment of your reading skills and basic understanding of your text. Therefore, your answers should be your original idea. So, please, avoid all online and published databases, as well as working with a partner.

Mill Creek offers multiple levels within each grade band; so, there is a list for EPIC, AP, 9th grade, 10th grade, 11th grade, and 12th grade. If you are taking an AP level Language Arts class as a senior or junior, complete the AP level Language Arts assignment.  If you are in the EPIC program, complete the EPIC assignment for your specific grade level. If you are neither in EPIC nor an AP level Language Arts class, scroll down for your grade level assignment.

 

  • Rising 9th Grade (non-PBL/EPIC)
  • Rising 10th Grade (non-PBL/EPIC)

  • Rising 11th Grade (non-AP Lang)
  • Rising 12th Grade (non-AP Level)

Gwinnett County Public Schools Student / Parent Handbook

I acknowledge reviewing the contents of the handbook with my student and consent to the terms of the Student/Parent Handbook. In addition, I have reviewed on the school’s website (or obtained and read a copy from a school) the listing of extracurricular activities available to my child.

• To opt out of this disclosure of directory information you must notify the school principal in writing within 10 days.

• To withhold your consent from media release for you and/or your child you must notify your school principal in writing within 10 days.  Click on the link below to view the GCPS Student / Parent Handbook.

Attendance Protocol Form

I also understand that Gwinnett County Public Schools has an attendance protocol in place and that schools will inform parents and students of attendance expectations and the consequences for excessive unexcused absences, including notice to parents of their student’s excessive absences. A pattern of absences could put a student at risk of not achieving grade level/course AKS. Under state law, a student with more than ten (10) unexcused absences is considered truant.  Click on the link below for more information.

Extracurricular Activities

I have reviewed the school’s web site and I am aware of the extracurricular activities available to my child.
