    Greetings Youngsters! 
     
     
    First, a reminder to read your summer books carefully--
    • Freshmen should read The Hobbit and one other book (your choice) off the list.   If you read The Count of Monte Cristo, read the abridged version.
    • Seniors enrolled in AP should read Midnight's Children, by Salman Rushdie, and Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte.
    Reading the Sparknotes, Bookrags, Shmoop, Cliff's Notes or any other notes alone will not help much with the tests, nor will watching the movies.  
     
    You are welcome to do both in addition to reading the assigned books.
     
     
    Regarding supplies, I ask that everyone keep a three-ring binder which will be devoted exclusively to English and that you maintain an adequate supply of loose leaf paper.* 
     
     
    All hand-written assignments must be completed on loose leaf paper, in blue or black ink, so please plan accordingly.   Assignments submitted on paper torn from a spiral notebook 
    will not be accepted.  
     
     
    You will need to cover all of your books.  A brown paper bag will suffice, but if you prefer book socks, get one for every subject.
     
    Wishing you a happy summer
     
     
    Ms. Burke
     
    *I understand that my colleagues are probably demanding that you keep a separate binder for their classes as well.  While this may seem like a lot of binders, 
    this approach has proved successful over time. 
     
     Your binder will be for English and only English. 
     A binder that holds papers from all subject areas will be an overstuffed 
    mess by about November.
