CHS Summer Reading List For 2018-2019

The Summer Reading list for 2018 has been announced. Click here to open the instructions for the 2018 Summer Reading Program. Please review the instructions carefully as the structure of our program has changed.

Each student must read this year’s Big Read, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer, and one other selection assigned to the course in which he will be enrolled next year.

As a service to our families, The CHS Bookstore has copies of this year’s Big Read on sale for $15. We encourage you to pick one up. Students can pay with cash, credit/debit card, or their student account. Students will hear more about this year’s selection at our May 18th Liturgy.

The Mission of the CHS Summer Reading Program is to encourage a love of reading by providing selections that not only have literary merit, but are engaging and relatable as well. It also fosters critical thinking and writing skills our students need to be successful. The Program teaches students to engage in constructive dialogue that is respectful, honest and mature.

Please direct questions regarding the Summer Reading program to English Department Chair, Ms. Tracy Ducote at tducote@catholichigh.org.
