Summer Reading

Soddy Daisy High School Summer Reading 2021

Hot breezes, cool waters, and good books- what a great way to relax this summer! Enjoy your summer break and also take the time to read the required number of texts for each grade level by the appointed date. If you have questions, contact your grade level counselor.

For the 2021-2022 school year, students must read one of the following novels in their grade band; those in honors classes must read two. Summer Reading will comprise the largest portion of the first unit, meaning that if students have not read over the summer, they will not be able to complete the work, which will result in multiple grades of zero. Summer reading must be finished by the first full week of school. The grade level listed below is based on the student’s school year for 2021-2022. Enjoy!
