New students and parents to CMS soon find out that our school READS! For the 2007-2008 school year CMS read a total of 14,709 books. So the average student read 15 books for the year. The Media Center respects and encourages the right of every parent to choose what their child reads. In order to help parents make those choices, young adult interest stickers have been place on those books designated by our reading program Scholastic Reading Counts as young adult. However, please be aware that books like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Stephen King's IT are all considered young adult interest. So we here at Collinsville Middle School encourage every parent to participate in their student's book selection.
