Summer Reading by Division

Lower School

As you and family look ahead to the lovely days of summer, please be sure to include reading in your summer plans. More than a hundred years of research tell us that without intentional educational activities over the summer months, students often lag behind in the fall. The very best way for your child to stay engaged is to make sure she is reading over the summer! We hope your daughters will read, read, read all summer long. We have also selected a required book for each student to read (by Form) that will be the focus for the opening days of the coming school year.

Parents, please help your younger daughters by reading the selected title with them, and reading it several times. Parents of older students, we encourage you to read the selected title yourself (or along with your child) so that you can discuss the book with your daughter.

Finally, though students are required to read the selected books below, we are hopeful that your child will return to school bursting to talk about all the books she’s read over the summer months.

To respect each family’s preference for obtaining books, we are providing you with the book title for your daughter’s summer reading. You may obtain a copy of the book at your local library or bookstore, online through an eBook, or from our online bookstore (www.k12sd.com).

Middle School

The selected books for each Form will be the focus in Humanities classes for the opening days of the coming school year. There are assignments for each Form so please open the attachments and review the instructions. You may obtain a copy of the books at your local library or bookstore, online through an eBook, or from our online bookstore at www.k12sd.com.
