Summer Reading
Posted 06/04/2018 02:36PM

Summer Assignments, including summer reading, are posted on Chase's parent and student portals.


From summer camp to summer jobs, vacations and cookouts to beach days, camping trips, and visits to the lake, the "lazy days of summer" can certainly be a busy time of year!  As beneficial as pleasure reading is, we know it can be hard to carve out time for reading during the summer months, so we've designed a fun and meaningful summer reading program that will make this important activity less of a chore. 

We've designed a fun and meaningful summer reading program that will make this important activity less of a chore.  In Lower School, this means engaging and interactive theme reads and a choice-filled reading challenge with a STEM twist.  Can you read five books and complete the circuit that will power up the Chasebot?  Rumor has it this robot has a special job to do, but you'll need to bring in your completed reading chart to see what it is! 

Middle School students will be sure to enjoy solving mind-bending puzzles alongside protagonist Lauren Ipsum in their all-school read, a book that teaches the basics of computer science in an intriguing and accessible way.  They'll also explore the wide world of literature as they read a carefully curated selection of books that will help them gear up for their English classes in the Fall. 

Choice is the name of the game in Upper School, as the students journey to Eastern Europe with their choice of one of five Theme Reads sponsored by the History Department in connection with next year's International Awareness Day.  The Science, Math, English, Foreign Language, and Arts Departments have sponsored Book Clubs, too, and we know students will have a hard time choosing just one book that ties into their academic and extracurricular interests!

Summer can be a wonderful time to relax and recharge your mind for the school year ahead, and we hope that this year's summer reading program encourages you and your child to do both!  Please see below for more information about this year's summer reading program and additional summer assignments.  Don't hesitate to reach out over the summer with any questions- I'd love to talk more about reading with you!

Best wishes for a happy summer!
