Our summer reading program provides students with the opportunity to maintain and sharpen their reading and thinking skills. All students are required to participate in our schoolwide program by reading the book for the class level they are entering in the fall. The novels will be integrated into the curriculum throughout the academic year.
The students do not need to complete worksheets but are asked to contemplate the themes, connections, characters, and social questions for their assigned book. The novels coincide with literature and units that are studied during the academic year and address many present issues. These novels will be a backdrop to activities that will be incorporated and student input from their novel is expected.
