2019 Summer Reading List

Lower School

Please make time to read each day over the summer! Students are most engaged in reading material they choose themselves, so we encourage students to read anything they are interested in. Students can also explore links to resources, tools, book lists, and games carefully selected for each grade level on the Library Resources page in the Student Portal of our website.

Upper School

Our exciting all-upper-school read is Jerry Craft's award-winning novel, New Kid. On the first day of school, students will meet with their advisory group to discuss the book. 

Our goal for summer reading is to encourage our students to read for pleasure over their break. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our school librarian, Marcia Bernard.

Transportation

To assist our day families, The Bement School offers daily van transportation services each year. This service runs from the towns of Amherst, Bernardston, Greenfield,  Hadley, and Northampton and pickup points and routes are determined based upon demand.

Our ability to accommodate requests for this service is limited by the level of demand for the service, and by applicable state law regarding capacity of our vans. If there are more requests than we can accommodate, we will give preference on a first-come, first-served basis.

Although the costs are not finalized for the 2019-2020 school year, we are estimating the charges to be:

Greenfield - $2,000 round trip and $1,000 for one way

Bernardston - $2,500 round trip and $1,500 for one way

Amherst/Hadley/Northampton - $2,700 for round trip and $1,900 for one way.

Reduced rates will be available for families receiving financial aid.
                   
If you are interested in transportation services, please contact the Bement business office by June 1. 

For more information about routes and combining transportation with after-school care, please call the Bement business office at 413-774-7061.
