Summer Reading

Summer Reading Assisgnments


 

Learning should not stop simply because students are out of school for the summer. For this reason, all students at Lutheran High School East have a summer reading assignment. The assignment varies by class, but will involve reading and then completing a series of writings about the books read. There will also be a test on the readings early in the first quarter of each school year.


Overdrive_LogoAll the books are readily available at local libraries. Students who have their school-provided Chromebooks can download the books for free using the OverDrive® website and their school accounts. Students can log in to OverDrive® by clicking here.


If you have questions about your assignment, please email [email protected] for assistance.
