Student Summer Reading Assignments
Raiders: Congratulations on moving forward toward your next year of high school!! In order to keep reading and critical thinking skills primed for next year, every Nathan Hale High School student will complete a summer reading assignment crafted by the teachers students will have next year. These summer reading assignments involve choice, so choose your book wisely based on your skill level, reading stamina and, most importantly, your interests. If you read the book early on in the summer, take some time right before school begins to follow through on any assigned tasks and to remind yourself of themes, characters, plot line, etc.
Most importantly, ENJOY READING!
Find your summer reading at the Nathan Hale Library ----> Here
