Our summer reading assisgnment is the same as last year. 

Rising 9th graders: You are entering a school that values reading for your own interest.  We are commited to helping you find topics of interest to explore through text.  READ what you want. Whether you like reading or not, it is a key component to success in school. Practice daily.  You improve your "reading muscle" by stretching outside of your boundaries.  Give it a try.  

Complete a reading log to be eligible for Kersey Vallety prizes provided by the district.  You can turn the log into Grimsley librarian, Mrs. Worrells during the first week of school. Look for an option to upload your reading minutes if we do not return to school in-person in August. 

10-12th graders: you know the SWRP drill.  Read every day.  Anything.  Your assignment is detailed in the link above.  It involves practicing citation and annotation.

Hey, Whirlies,

I am setting my alarm to take a reading break at 11 am everyday.  Set yours for whatever time works for you, but make time to read.
