Dear Crusader Parents,
With only weeks of the current academic year remaining, we are looking ahead to the return of our highly successful Summer Reading program. All current students who will be enrolled in grades 9-12 this fall will be expected to choose one book from a list of seventy titles, read it over the summer, and then engage in a small group discussion facilitated by a faculty member at the start of the upcoming school year. Research indicates that life-long learning through reading is more likely to take place if students have a choice of book to read and if these books are high interest and relevant to an adolescents’ lives. Student and faculty response to this new format was extremely encouraging.
Answers to frequently asked questions about the Summer Reading program are available here. Students have received information through Schoology including the available choices and the process for making a selection. Please encourage their timely response.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement of this important component of your son’s education.
Assistant Principal for Academics
