Summer Reading Suggestions and Summer Assignments
Summer reading suggestions do not intend to burden students during a time best spent with friends and family. Rather, summer reading attempts to enhance summer break, by showing students how to spend their time wisely. Indeed, many of us are guilty of squandering precious leisure time by sleeping in too late, watching television, and playing video games. Hopefully, models such as Bilbo Baggins and Benjamin Franklin inspire our students to employ their summers learning rewarding skills, practicing virtuous habits, and going on grand adventures.

For rising 7th-9th grader, there is a specific assignment that they are required to complete before the first day of school. These assignments are particular to each age and course of study they will be completing in the fall. Please make sure to affirm the importance of this endeavor and support your child and the school in its completion. For younger students, we have a suggested summer reading list posted on our website and encourage you and your children to explore its richness, build memories, and habituate their hearts towards reading over the summer break.
