All students, including incoming freshmen, have received this year’s summer reading list. Reading a book from the list is a requirement, and students are assessed on their completion of the book at the start of the new school year. The purpose of summer reading is to prevent summer learning loss by continuing literacy and analysis skills. While public libraries and the Conant library do have copies of the books, we recommend purchasing a book through a local or online bookstore. Please consider a used book as a money-saving strategy. All summer, students can tweet about the books with hashtag #chssummerreading and #ConantCougars. They can also join our Schoology group using code N9GVQ-4KP66 for discussing books with peers and teachers.
