Rockland High School is committed to promoting student literacy and a love of reading. We offer many extracurricular literary activities throughout the year, including our Book Club, IMAGES Literary Magazine, Poetry Out Loud Competition, and Spellman Oratorical to name a few. Over the summer, students are asked to read one book from the list below. Students who submit a thoughtful response (400-750 words) to the essay prompt may win a $25 gift card to Dunkin Donuts.
The essay prompt is the following:
Authors communicate their messages in many ways. After reading your selected summer reading book, explain the book’s theme and how the author expresses this message to the readers.
Students should email Dr. Harrison (firstname.lastname@example.org) essay responses no later than September 4, 2018. Dr. Harrison will review the essay responses and then all thoughtful submissions will be entered into the raffle. 8 recipients will receive $25 gift cards to Dunkin Donuts.
In addition to selecting one of the summer reading selections below, students should complete any additional summer homework assignments that may have been assigned for Honors or Advanced Placement courses.
The summer reading instructions are located on our website here.
