DT - Summer Reading Assignments
Ascension Episcopal School requires summer reading to encourage students to read for pleasure, to appreciate quality literature, and to develop and maintain good reading habits. We know from research that reading helps our students to enrich vocabulary, to enhance focus and concentration, and to gain knowledge about our culture and the culture of others. It is our hope that through this year’s summer assignments we can expose students to more literature than is possible during the school year and will allow our students to find literature that is personally engaging and challenging. Take some time with your child to enjoy your break this summer, and when the time is right please partner with us on our summer reading program so that our students come back to school ready to jump back into the classroom.
This year, the Downtown Campus will be open four days in July for AR testing. You can drop in thru the main office on Tuesday, July 9, Tuesday, July 16 , Tuesday July, 23, and Tuesday July 30 from 10:00 am- 1:00 pm for summer reading AR testing.
