Parents and Students, 

 

Above is a list of readings that your student will be studying throughout the 15-16 school year.  Readings marked with an asterisk are recommended, by the teacher, for summer reading so students can be better prepared for class discussion.   

 

Enjoy your summer and we look forward to seeing you in August! 

 

Thank you,
