2017 Summer Reading Information

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to summer! This letter gives all the instructions and details for how to complete your summer reading assignment. Book lists can be found below.

This summer, each student is asked to read two books, with the exception of seniors, who will read one. The first book will be selected from the appropriate grade list (“Grab Bag”). These lists were put together with input from the CRMS faculty and were built with the intention of giving you some autonomy in choosing how to spend your time this summer. We also strove to give you a broad selection of genres and topics.

The second book is the “Grade Read.” All of these books were selected by the English and History faculty and will be discussed in humanities classes during the first few weeks of school in the fall. Seniors do not have the ‘“Grade Read.’’ Additionally, sophomores will have two grade reads in lieu of a book from their class “Grab Bag” list.

Students should be prepared to discuss, be quizzed on, and reference both their “Grade Read(s)” and “Grab Bag” read during the first week of class.

Freshmen must complete a short written assignment on The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Sophomores should complete the reading guides for Brave New World and Minus 148 Degrees: The Winter Ascent of Mt. McKinley.

Most major bookstores and public libraries should have all of the summer reading titles available. The freshmen written assignment, and the sophomore reading guides can be found in the links below. We encourage you to do some research before you decide which book you would like to read. Enjoy!

Best,

Meghan Detering
Librarian
