Summer Reading Assisgnments

 

Learning should not stop simply because students are out of school for the summer. For this reason, all students at Lutheran High School East have a summer reading assignment. The assignment varies by class, but will involve reading and then completing a series of writings about the books read. There will also be a test on the readings early in the first quarter of each school year.
