2021 Summer Reading

some aren't........

Hello Cape Cod Tech Community

Below you will find the information for summer reading. We want all students to stay engaged this summer. All the ELA books are available as a pdf via the links, so you will not even need to go to the book store. As for the shop books, there is still plenty of time.

Thanks and remember to be the some that are reading.....

Mr. Terranova
