• Dear Parents and Students:


    We hope you have all experienced a great year!  We're already looking forward to another.  As we plan for the upcoming year, English teachers at BHS hope students will spend some time reading this summer.  Practice in reading improves comprehension, as well as benefits the reader in many other ways.  While we encourage reading classic literature, we also advocate reading for pleasure. 


            Suggestions for summer reading come from a list of titles most often used on the AP Literature Exam.    However, we also encourage students to read age-appropriate books of interest to them. 


           We hope Bassett High School students will enjoy reading this summer.
