Summer Reading Program 2015

All students are required to participate in Whittier's  Summer Reading Program. The required reading and assignments for each grade are explained in detail in the summer reading packets.

Students are expected to complete the assignments and hand them in to their English teachers at the beginning of the school year.

The purpose of summer reading is to keep all students engaged in the learning process throughout the summer and to continue to prepare students for the MCAS. The books selected support the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
