Summer Reading Assignment Information

Freshman

Incoming 9th graders should select a title from the Freshman Summer Reading List. 9th graders will use only these titles. 

Grades 10-12

Students may select any title of their choosing; please do not use a title read for previous Summer Reading or class assignments.

Everyone

Students may choose to complete the Summer Reading Response, available on the WHS Summer Reading webpage as part of their summer reading grade. They may complete this over the summer as soon as they finish the book (so the book is most fresh in their minds). Responses must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on August 31. If the online response has not been completed before September 1, students will take a quiz in class in early fall.

The Teen Room has a display of books from the Freshman list, as well as recommended titles for grades 10-12, to make it easier to find what you need this summer. If you don't see the book you're looking for within the display, simply ask one of our friendly, knowledgeable staff to assist you. We’d be happy to help you place holds on materials. Need a book recommendation? We can help with that, too!

Have a great summer and happy reading!
