NHS Summer 2024 Reading Program

Our Newmark High School 2024 Summer Reading Program is designed to give students an opportunity to strengthen their reading comprehension skills.  Each year, students are encouraged to choose a novel that is of high interest with the objective of finding reading enjoyable.  Students are always encouraged to read as many as they like throughout the summer.

This year, ALL students regardless of their participation in ESY, are required to read one book from the provided lists.

  • Students who are attending ESY will have an opportunity to choose their book in advance and it will be available in the English classroom on the first day of ESY.
  • Students who are not attending ESY can purchase their own book from any preferred bookstore. 

During the first weeks of school, students will work on a required assignment in their English class centered around the book they selected. Students will be presented with a choice board that includes diverse options like crafting a diary entry, assembling a collage, designing a soundtrack, composing a book of poetry, or writing a letter to the author. This project will be graded and included as part of their first quarter grade in English.


Please have your teen bring in their summer reading book on the first day of school, Thursday, September 5, 2024.
