 Suggested Summer Reading

The faculty and the administration know that reading is important for success in high school and beyond. Yorktown’s homework during vacation policies reflect faculty awareness that students look forward to a break from regularly assigned academic work, and are often involved in other types of enrichment activities, which we support and encourage. With this in mind, summer assignments will not be required. The Yorktown English Department suggests that you review a previous year’s required reading for some suggestions as to what may be covered in the first weeks of the new school year.
