Returning and new students are required to read the following books during the summer. An essay based on the student's reading will be assigned during the first week of school.
Instead of City of the Beasts, 8th grade students may choose Harper Lee's new novel, Go Set a Watchman. It is set for release on July 14. This novel is a sequel--although she wrote it first--to Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, which the 8th graders will read in September.
