• Hoping your summer has been exciting and that your children have had positive educational experiences. The team looks forward to welcoming the class of 2025 this fall.


     At Farragut we preach and nurture active reading with the hope of promoting positive lifelong reading habits. Although we assign one book to read over vacation, we encourage students to read as much as they can and to share those experiences with their peers in September.      


    For suggestions about choosing books for a middle schooler:  click here


               Your child should read one of the following books chosen from among these titles.  Students will write about one of the novels upon their return to school.

    •  Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko (Historical Fiction)
    • The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
    • So Far From the Bamboo Grove by Yoko Kawashima Watkins (Historical Fiction)


     Copies of the texts were already distributed in June.

    Additional copies are available in the middle school office or in the public library.
