Summer READING….. why?

 

 

Research shows that students who read for pleasure in the summer months perform better in all subject areas when they return to school.  In fact, not reading for extended periods of time can cause students to backslide in their academic growth.  The CCHS English department has compiled a list of books that are of high interest and literary merit.  Whether you choose one of these or a book of your own choosing, please take advantage of the summer break to dive into a good book!
