  • Summer Reading

    All Tates Creek Middle School students are encouraged to read at least two books over the summer and fill out an IB MYP Learner Profile One-Pager for each book. The IB learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these qualities can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national, and global communities. We invite students to explore these attributes through their summer reading.
