Summer Reading

All Odyssey students will participate in a summer reading program. A summer reading program has several benefits to your child:

• It continues our school-wide focus on reading.

• It helps prevent or slow the gap in reading during the summer months.

• It helps maintain a connection to Odyssey during the break.

• It provides a goal/purpose for reading over the summer.

• It creates a shared goal with your child’s classmates and a starting point for the upcoming school year.

Below is a copy of your child’s Summer Reading Program requirements. Books are available through our school library, the public library, and at local and online bookstores. The reading(s) should be completed over the summer break and assignments are due within the first few weeks of school. Happy reading!

Odyssey Charter Jr/Sr High Summer Assignment

The students are responsible for reading their selected grade-level text during summer break. During the first week of school, each teacher will base rigorous class discussion and activities on the summer reading. Students should be prepared to focus on literary aspects of the work along with making personal connections. A dialogue journal or annotated text (e.g. Post-its) is suggested for easier reference during class.
