Summer Reading

Studies show that the ability to read and comprehend high-level text is the most vital skill in learning and development. ~Mr. Behnken, Superintendent

Summer reading is one of the best things your students can do this summer at home! 

  • Book club sign ups for Lower School (completed Grades K-4) and Middle School (completed Grades 5-8)
  • All book clubs will be led by an HCA teacher and have 1-2 zoom meetings over the summer
  • Mr. Young will continue reading a book each weeknight on Facebook Live at 7:30 PM. Tune in and join us!

Suggested summer reading books are listed below by age group. Look for some instructional videos below for how to help your child become a better reader.

A message from Mr. Behnken about summer reading!

COMPLETED GRADES 5-8 BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

COMPLETED GRADES 9-11 BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

High school students, this summer we want to give you some choice in what you read. So we asked the readers in our school – your coaches, your band and orchestra directors, the Bible department, your math teachers, your principal, fellow students, and, of course, your English teachers – to put together a list of some favorite books. Pick one title from any of the books listed to read over the summer. Come back to school in August ready to share your thoughts. AP students have specific books to read – you will find those at the end of the recommendation lists. Happy Reading!

ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) REQUIRED SUMMER READING

  • Grade 11 AP Language- How to Argue with a Cat by Jay Heinrichs
  • Grade 12 AP Literature- Part 1 Only Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
