St. Edward CCHS uses the “One Book, One School” system. The entire student body reads the same book over the summer, and all classes will use it in the curriculum.
Required summer reading 2018 for students and staff will be “March:Book One” by John Lewis. All students placed in an honors or AP level English course (including incoming freshmen) should also read “March: Book Two” by John Lewis. Copies of the books, as well as the summer reading assignment, can be picked up in the main office beginning on Monday, May 14th for all incoming freshmen and new students. Current students will receive the assignment and copies of the books at school the week of May 14th.
