2019-20 Upper School Summer Reading

 

Late Enrollment and Summer Reading
A student who enrolls between August 1 and August 15 will be responsible for reading ONE English and ONE Social Studies summer reading selection, and must complete a second selection in each subject/honors within the first two weeks of school. If a student enrolls after August 15, he or she is responsible for ONE English and ONE Social Studies summer selection within the first week of school and whether a second will be required is at the discretion of the classroom teachers.

For English Courses: Students, please annotate the required summer reading book(s), answer the study guide questions, and/or complete the study guide charts.
