Summer Reading - Classes of 2019 and 2020

The list of summer reading titles for the incoming 9th and 10th grade students (classes of 2019 & 2020) is now posted! Please take some time to review the list of choices - there are some great books on the list. The only summer reading assignment requirement for 9th and 10th grade students is to read and enjoy their book, and be prepared to discuss their book in the student/staff discussion groups we will be holding in September.

Ms. Fournier and Ms. Belcher will be visiting the 9th grade ELA classes next week, to assist students in signing up for their book. We can answer any questions about summer reading at that time as well. If you'd like to preview some of the books - we do have limited copies in the HHS Library. Come check them out!

And for those students who think they'd like to read more than one book this summer, don't forget to pick up your "Book Bingo" card for the summer! Those with completed bingo cards by the end of the summer are invited to attend a celebratory pizza party at the HHS library, to recognize all of our reading efforts! More details at the circulation desk...
Happy Reading everyone!
