“Have you ever heard of a group of musicians who rehearsed every day from September through June, but then took a three-month summer vacation without practicing at all? Or of professional athletes who never exercised during the off-season?” (Boulay and Fairchild, 2002, p. 3)

Learning must occur year-round, and reading provides students with an opportunity to practice skills that might otherwise be forgotten during the summer months. Students are expected to read and take notes following the provided suggestions. Note: During the first weeks of school, students will be held accountable for their summer reading through graded tasks provided by each teacher.


Summer Reading Goals:


  • Increase exposure to quality literature
  • Develop reading skills that foster comprehension and critical thinking
  • Promote independent reading, inquiry, and life-long reading habits
  • Establish a foundation for Pre-AP and AP discussions
