Summer readingSummer Reading

Summer reading is one way to help students develop their literacy skills, broaden their interests, and extend their background knowledge. During the summer all students are expected to choose and read books that interest and challenge them. Students and parents may use the resources listed in the Recommended Reading section below to select books that are diverse in terms of challenge, ethnicity and culture, topics, classic and contemporary time periods, and genres. There is something here for everybody.

Many middle and high schools have developed specific requirements for summer reading to support their instructional programs. Please contact your school with questions or comments.
