Summer reading challenge for high school students
During the summer months, our high school media specialist, Mrs. Thomas, would like to challenge the high school students to participate in the summer reading program. This challenge is for students to read at least 10 books during the summer months. Students are definitely welcome to read more than the 10 books. Visit the high school's library YouTube account to view the promotion video.
Students are to read one book from each of the the following 10 categories:
- A book published in 2020
- A book you said you read, but didn't
- A classic
- A recommendation from someone
- A thriller (think something you might read for an assignment)
- A book about a real person or place
- A crime story (true or fictional)
- A book with a memorable romance
- Re-read something from 5+ years ago
- A book you've been meaning to read for a while
As you finish a book for each category, write the title and author of the book on the tracker sheet. Remember to also check off the category on the category sheet. By reading at least 10 books, students will earn a completion prize and one grand prize entry! At any point you can contact Mrs. Thomas for reading suggestions.
In August, at the beginning of the new school year, Mrs. Thomas will begin taking completed summer reading tracker sheets.
In addition to a completed tracker sheet, there are ways to earn additional entries. Students can earn extra grand prize entries by doing the following (do 1, 2, or all 3):
- Follow the BAHS library on Instagram
- Post a photo of yourself reading somewhere this summer and tag the library on Instagram
- Submit a book review to firstname.lastname@example.org for one of the books you read
