Do I have to do summer reading this year?
You do indeed! Not only is it fun to read new books and share what you've read (and maybe get some recommendations for other great books to read!), but participants will win prizes up to and including special dress down days & bookish swag.
The individual student and the collective grade that reads the most will get special rewards!
How long do I have?
Summer Reading will officially begin on Thursday, June 1st and end on September 11th.
Can I choose any book I want?
Yes! You can read any two books as long as it's over 200 pages. Ebooks, audiobooks, graphic novels, and fanfiction over 40,000 words absolutely count.
If you need a recommendation, check out some ideas here or email Ms. Allegra!
What if I want to read more than 2 books?
That's awesome! Keep submitting your titles for extra chances to win!
Do I have to write an essay or do a project for this?
Nope, but be prepared to talk to other students about the books you've read & engage in some literary activities when we're back at school!
Where can I access books to read at home?
Check out your local library, borrow books from your friends and family, or buy your books from a local independent bookstore!

What about AP summer work?
Some AP classes have required reading over the summer-- these books do not count towards the summer reading program!
