Required Summer Reading 2018ALL West Chicago Community High School students are required to participate in summer reading. The English faculty promotes summer reading for a number of reasons:
Fall English classes will include activities and writing based on these summer books.
- Wildcats are readers!
- Reading is exciting when you find the right book! We want you to say, “I’m a reader!”
- If students do not read over the summer, (ideally a minimum of six books), “summer slide” can occur and the student will lose the reading gains made during the school year.
