Summer Reading and AP Summer Work

All students have summer reading for English and ELA.  Additionally, students in AP classes may have summer assignments. 

 Where can summer assignments be found?

English Department Summer Reading Policy Statement:

Summer reading serves a number of purposes. First, summer reading is diagnostic. It provides teachers a means of assessing students’ critical thinking, reading comprehension, and writing skills. Next, summer reading is academic. It keeps students academically engaged over the summer, and it sets a tone for the level of rigor students should expect in any English class in the coming year. Last, and perhaps most important, summer reading is communal. It provides students a vehicle for cultural literacy, choice, and personal growth and independence of thought.
