It is recommended that students wait until August 1 to complete summer math assignments, as teachers hope for students to have a fresh understanding of these ideas when school begins. Students are asked to complete the following based on their course enrollment for 2016-2017, prior to August 16:
Freshmen are to read one book this summer (see required text below). Sophomore, junior, and senior students are to read three books this summer. At least two of these books are the choice of the student. The third book should be the following, if your class for next year is listed below:
English I: Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
Advanced English I: Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
English II: The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom
Advanced English II: The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom
English III: No required book; please choose 3
English IV: No required book; please choose 3
Honors Gender, Identity, and Literature: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are asked to read their three books and to quiz on them as they are completed by using the AR (Accelerated Reader app). If your score on any quiz is below 70%, you will need to choose another book to read and take the quiz for that book.
Freshmen, we will ask you to take a quiz on your book when school begins in August, possibly on the first day of regular class (not Orientation Day). Please finish your book prior to August 16.
