Summer Reading Lists & Information

"When students don’t read during the summer months, they lose educational ground – a phenomenon that lowers achievement potential and widens the achievement gap. Research shows that students can lose up to three months of reading ability over the summer." ~from the GaDOE

HES students are challenged to read everyday this summer for a minimum of 15 to 30 minutes. Click here for Summer Reading Lists and Program Information.
