Dear Parents,
To encourage students to continue reading throughout the summer, the English teachers have selected summer reading for their classes.
If the reading is a novel, please purchase an unabridged copy from any bookstore or web site such as Amazon, Books a Million, or Barnes and Noble. If the reading is a short story or a set of short stories/essays, access the file on the Holy Savior Menard website, using the following steps: holysaviormenard.com – Academics – Departments – English – Summer Reading.
Students should finish the reading before the first week of school and should be prepared to take a test, complete an analysis, or write an essay on the selections during the first week or two of school. Furthermore, students need to refer to the link in the previous paragraph to access the written assignments that accompany the reading.
Please encourage your child to complete this summer assignment.
Sincerely,
Holy Savior Menard English teachers
