Summer Reading

All students are encouraged to read over the summer not only for fun, but as a way to prevent the loss of important reading skills over the extended break.  For every book read over the summer, students are eligible for prizes.

Required Reading for Honors, AP and ECE Courses

Honors, AP, and Eastern (Honors) Public Speaking students are also eligible for prizes if they read books in addition to their required summer reading assignments. Prizes will not be awarded for books read in a previous English class.

Follow these steps to earn Prizes:

  1. Write a short book review (4-5 sentences) and submit via the online Google Form as you finish reading each book.  Book reviews will be accepted through Friday, September 13, 2024.

  2. Come to the Edwin H. Land Library at NFA before Friday, October 18, 2024 to claim your prize.
