Freshman Summer Read

Welcome Freshman Wildcats!

To prepare for your freshman year, we ask that you read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee over the summer. If you were not able to check out a copy of this novel from the school library in May, you will be able to find To Kill a Mockingbird at the public library, in stores, and online.

We have many exciting things planned for our summer read, and we invite you and your family to take part in reading and discussing this classic story about friendship, empathy, justice, and coming of age.
