• Raptors Read!Raptor reading in its nest

    Our Raptors Read! program allows all students—regardless of grade level or course—to select a text that best matches their reading preferences and reading levels to enjoy over the summer. When students return to Eaglecrest in August, they will have an opportunity to discuss their book with their peers.

    If students already have a book they want to read, that’s great! If not, we have curated a list of suggested titles.. To find out more about this program and to access the list of books, please watch the video below and visit the Raptors Read! page
