Dear member of the class of 2005:
Reading is one of the most important skills an individual can acquire, for both vocational and personal benefits. In an effort to encourage your individual development and to promote a lifelong love in this area, the Humanities Area offers you the opportunity to choose books of particular interest to meet the summer reading requirement. This standard applies to all upcoming sophomores and invites parents/guardians to share the process by verifying successful completion. It is mandatory that this sheet be returned to the student's homeroom teacher during the first week of school, regardless of which semester English and/or social studies is to be taken.
In addition, one specific book is required or suggested, depending on level. Students will be requested to share their understanding of books read, pending individual instructors' requirements. It is our sincere desire that you enjoy this opportunity.
