Summer Reading 2018The links on the left give instructions for the 2018-2019 School Year Summer Reading. Because schedules often change during the first few weeks of school, it is expected that College Prep and Honors students will be prepared to test on summer reading during the first week of school regardless of which semester they are currently enrolled in English.
AP English students will find their assignments linked on the left. If a student changes from Honors to AP they are still responsible for the AP reading.
Any student scheduled to take English 2nd semester is allowed to take their summer reading first semester during the first semester testing window. This arrangement can be made by speaking with any teacher from the English department. If a student does decide to test first semester, they are not allowed to retest the second semester. The grade will stand for second semester.
