Check Out Our Lazy Days of Summer Reading ListSummer is the perfect season to fill your schedule with fun-in-the-sun physical activities like swimming, hiking, and biking. It’s also the ideal time to learn new things and reinforce the lessons you’ve been taught in school. One of the best ways to exercise your brain and learn new things is through reading. Reading requires proficiency just like physical skills do. The more you practice, the stronger and easier reading will become. Whatever you’re doing this summer, be sure to set aside some time to relax and curl up with a good book!Below is our selected summer reading for all grade levels. Students in the upper grades may choose to read the book of their choice, whereas freshman students are required to read the one book assigned to their class. AP students must read one book from this list in addition to their AP book. If you need any assistance in acquiring your reading materials, stop by the Digital Learning Commons and chat with us before the summer starts. If you have any additional questions, contact your Career Enrichment teacher.Enjoy the summer!
