  • What is the Summer Reading Program, and do I have to do it?

    Posted by:

    Raptors Rest, Relax, and Read is our summer reading program. This program partners with the Eaglecrest Library to connect students with current, popular books to keep them engaged with reading over the summer. There is no specific assignment connected to the reading, but students will be asked to complete an assignment or reflection in their English class at the start of the school year. To learn more about this program, please see the Raptors Rest, Relax, and Read page.


    All students must complete either this program or a summer assignment specific to the Honors 9 and 10, AP Language and Comp, or AP Literature classes. If you are enrolled in an honors or AP course, please visit the Summer Assignments page to learn more about those requirements.

  • What books will I be reading?

    Posted by:

    This will differ from teacher to teacher and within grades. Teachers will provide you with a syllabus at the start of the school year that goes over the books you will be reading for the year with some potential for change. Grade levels will have common texts that all classes explore, and teachers will supplement those with other options for that grade.
