NHS Summer Reading Program 2020

Summer 2020 Reading Program: All Newmark High School students are required to participate in the summer reading program. Books and assignments may vary by reading level. 

Our Summer Reading Program is designed to give students an opportunity to strengthen their comprehension and reading skills.  This year students will select a book based on their Lexile reading range, which connect learners with resources at the right level of reading challenge. A detailed Summer Reading packet was mailed home in late May with customized information.

After reading the book, all students are required to turn in a text to self project, comic summary or a video commercial on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. The project or review will be graded and counted toward their first quarter English grade. The project guidelines are listed below.

For students attending ESY (not Robotics or Work Program):
During the ESY program your child will be assigned a novel based on their Lexile reading level, which connects learners with resources at the right level of reading challenge. After reading the book students are required to turn in a text to self project, comic summary or a video commercial on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. The project will be graded and counted toward their first quarter English grade.
