Summer Reading List 

         The summer reading list allows students to prepare for the upcoming school year.

A quiz will be given on all summer reading selections within the first week of school. Class discussions, essays, and tests will follow throughout the first quarter. While completing summer selections, students should take suitable notes in preparation for both written analysis and class discussion. Students should bring to class questions and thoughtful insight about their reading.


*Optional study questions for all selections are available on the following teachers’ In Sites pages: Mrs. Jerles, Grade 9; Ms. Luster, Grade 10; Mrs. Horn, Grade 11; and Ms. Free, Grade 12.
