Summer Reading and Assignments
Summer provides a time that is less structured than the school year. If offers us an opportunity to pursue learning at a more leisurely pace. All students are asked to read works of literature chosen by the English department. Various departments have also chosen enriching reads, views, or works for students enrolled in specific courses.
All summer assignments and course materials have been uploaded.
