Summer Reading for ALL English Students (except AP Language and AP Literature)
Students are required to choose a book of at least 100 pages to read this summer. The book can be any work of fiction not previously assigned in an English class, as long as it is school appropriate. Teachers will assign a multi-media project once iPads are distributed, and students will be required to complete the project as well as do an in-class presentation for a major grade during the first nine weeks grade report. Questions can be directed to any English teacher or the School Librarian, Jen Chesney.
