Please note that AP Lit and AP Lang students received their summer reading books at the end of the 2023-24 school year. If a student did not receive the book or are is new to school, he or she may pick it up in the front office. 

AP Lit and AP Lang students can visit the course pages (linked in the navigation) for  additional, optional summer reading suggestions.

There are no summer reading requirements CP English classes or for English electives.

A Note About Policy: If a parent requests that his/her own child not read a given book, the teacher and/or school administrator should resolve the issue, perhaps by arranging for use of alternative material meeting essentially the same instructional purpose.
