Summer Reading 2017 - NEW STUDENTS
Posted on 07/28/2017

Welcome to the Three Rivers Middle College family! To help you transition to our unique school culture, we are asking you to read Don’t Eat the Marshmallow… Yet!: The Secret to Success in Work and Life by Joachim de Posada and Ellen Singer. These books have been purchased for you by TRMC and were in the welcome bag that you received at our Open House. Parents and siblings are also invited to read the book as well. If you did not receive a book, please contact the main office. 


The book has been divided into 6 reading assignments for you that are paired with 6 discussion assignments below. Reading assignments are listed on the attached parent letter. Each discussion has a short YouTube video to watch. These videos have been were created to coincide with the themes of each reading, and extend your thinking.


After reading and watching each video, please add a comment below each assignment with your response to the discussion questions. If the assignment asks you to create something, you may upload it using the assignment feature. Please click here to view the classroom code and the breakdown of assignments. 


Reading and discussions/assignments must be done by August 26 since it will discussed duringorientation. 
In addition, please feel free to interact with your classmates and respond to their thoughts in a respectful manner. This online discussion is something that your teachers will be using often at TRMC and in your TRCC classes, so this is a way for you to get comfortable with this approach.


Please feel free to email Pam Santerre with any questions at psanterre@threeriversmiddlecollege.org  


Wishing you a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable summer & looking forward to meeting you in August!
