Summer Reading and Assignments

All English courses require at least one reading assignment during the summer. Please complete the book assigned for your grade level by Day 1 of the 2016-2017 school year.  You will be assessed in the form of an exam or essay on your comprehension of the novel. Please be prepared!! If there are any questions or concerned please contact the English department chair via email

****Please Note: If  you are a transfer student or enroll anytime after August 1, 2016, you are still required to complete reading and assessment. Students that enroll after August 1st will have an extension until September 6, 2016 to complete the summer requirement.
