For summer reading, all students are required to read any two books from this list of faculty-recommended titles. In addition, the whole school will read, Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward. This amazing novel won the 2017 National Book Award for fiction. We're excited to announce that Ward will be a visiting author for a day at St. Andrew's next spring! The whole school will also read Carol Dweck's Mindset: The New Psychology of Success; this book outlines how a growth mindset leads to success in all areas of our life.
Students will need to complete the reading by the Opening of School for orientation activities. When we return from summer vacation, teachers will lead book discussions on the books they recommended. It will be a fun way to engage with a variety of people in the community and to discuss the books you read.
