Summer Reading List

Dear Students of The Greene School,
 
As another school year comes to a close, we hope that you and your family have a summer vacation full of adventure. It is our goal is to encourage all students to become lifelong readers and to see reading as an integral and vital part, of not only your life, but of society. Reading transports us to places we have not been and into new worlds, providing a filter through which we can clarify our thinking. It is with this goal in mind that we make the summer reading selections.
 
All summer texts can be found in your local library, although we do recommend that you purchase your books for the purpose of annotation and ease of access during the Fall semester. Below, you will find the requirements for each grade level and the assignment.
 
Please reach out with any questions! All work is due upon returning to school in the Fall. We can be reached (401) 397-8600. You can also email Ms. Percival (grades 10 & 12 English Teacher) at mpercival@thegreeneschool.org Ms. Kristiansen (grades 9 & 11 English Teacher) at skristiansen@thegreeneschool.org or Ms. Edelmann (Principal) at aedelmann@thegreeneschool.org.
 
As always, the more students read over the summer, the more prepared they will be for high school and college. We encourage students to take a book with them wherever they go. In addition, a great way to keep up with writing skills is to journal about summer adventures. So, get lost in a text while enjoying the sunshine -- read as many books as possible this summer.
 
Have a wonderful summer!
