Summer Reading 2018

It's offically summer!

Version en español

Make reading something you do this summer!  Why?  Because the more you read, the better you get at it.  Reading is necessary for success in all subject areas as it is one of the primary ways we learn.  Research shows that reading over the summer can prevent summer learning loss.  Reading can take you to new places, expand your understanding or teach you a new skill, AND will help you prepare for the new school year.  

The summer reading assignment page links to specific assignment information, and also lists books by grade level recommended by THS English teachers.  Other good book recommendations for summer reading include the Nutmeg Award nominees for 2019.  (
