WHS Summer Reading Program

Dear Parents,

As summer approaches, we want to make sure our students do not experience a “summer slide”, especially when it comes to literacy. Therefore, the Waltrip English Department has compiled the attached summer reading assignments for students. If your child is going into 10th grade, for example, then she/he should select the 10th grade summer reading attachment. If your child is taking AP Language next year, for example, then she/he should select that attachment. Aside from the attached literacy assignments, teachers will have follow up projects when school resumes August 23rd, 2021.

All of the books that have been selected are easily accessible at almost any bookstore or online bookstore, including Amazon. Further questions may go to English Department Chair Stephanie Seewald.

Additionally, Ram Camp for incoming 9th graders is the second week of August and they will have a separate book assigned at that time as part of Ram Camp (more details to come).

Have a safe summer.

Michael Niggli, Principal Waltrip High School
