Summer Reading

Summer Reading

We are excited to continue our “One Book, One School” summer reading program for the 2nd year.  This program aims to both encourage students to read and foster a sense of community through literature.  All students have been given the “One Book, One School” text to read over the summer.  This year's book, The Things They Carried, is a collection of linked short stories written by American novelist Tim O'Brien about a platoon of American soldiers fighting on the ground in the Vietnam War.  Upon our return to GHS in September, activities and contests related to the book will be planned.  You can learn more under our "For Students" drop-down menu by clicking on "Summer Assignments."  Please note that students enrolled in Pre-AP and AP classes for the 2018-2019 school year are required to complete an additional reading assignment to best prepare them for success in the course ahead of them.
