Summer Reading

  • Welcome to the "Minuteman Reads" Summer Reading Program

    Minuteman High School actively supports the growth of reading skills that will allow students to succeed academically and vocationally, as well as recognize the lifelong value of reading as a source of information, communication, and entertainment. To this end, all incoming and enrolled Minuteman students participate in the "Minuteman Reads" Summer Reading Program.

    The program requirements for each grade include reading assigned books and taking computer-based tests.  The tests will be given in your English class during the first week of school.  If you prefer to take a test earlier, two summer reading testing days have been set aside.  Come to Minuteman (old facility) on Wednesday, July 17th from 8 a.m. to noon to take the Scholastic Reading Counts version of the test.  In addition, it is strongly recommended that students complete study guides before taking the test, as these may be used during the testing.

    In addition, it is strongly recommended that students complete the graphic notes organizer.  These can be used during the testing and turned in for extra credit.
    Summer reading assessments will count as 15% of each student's Term 1 English grade.
