Breed Reads are designed to get everyone reading, thinking, and sharing.

"Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer"
by Rick Riordan

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother's mysterious death, he's lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers. One day, he's tracked down by an uncle he barely knows, a man his mother claimed was dangerous. Uncle Randolph tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. To prevent the doomsday battle, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fateful decision. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die.

English High School | Summer Reading 2017
Students Entering Grades 9, 10, 11, and 12

In support of our LEHS core values, “to have students become self-directed, life-long learners who acquire core knowledge and think critically and collaboratively, and effectively utilize technology to communicate and participate in a global society,” all LEHS students and staff will participate in our One School-One Read summer reading program.

All LEHS students will receive a copy of Adriana Mather’s How to Hang a Witch before summer vacation. Ms. Mather is a direct descendent of Puritan minister, Cotton Mather, and her book is set in modern-day Salem.

Through our summer reading, we will work as a whole community to investigate some of the book’s important themes like acceptance, bullying, and loyalty. Students are encouraged to take notes as they read in order to be prepared for various assessments and discussions to be held in the fall.
