Summer Reading

2018-2019 SUMMER READING REQUIREMENTS
The Language Arts Department at PCA requires each student entering Fifth through Eighth Grades to read a specific novel over the summer. In addition, Fifth/Sixth Grade students read a book of choice and Seventh/Eighth Grade students read a biography. The Language Arts teachers have prepared assignments relating to these books to assist students with comprehension and thematic focus. Students are expected to bring their completed assignments and their books on the first day of class.

ENGLISH NOVEL REQUIRED READING

PCA requires a specific version of the required novel in order to simplify classroom discussions and notations. English summer reading novels are available for purchase starting June 1 from the Follett Virtual Bookstore. Books are available from our virtual bookstore website, www.prestonwoodchristian.bkstr.com (or you may access this website through the PCA website via Quicklinks). You may purchase the novel elsewhere, but it must be the exact ISBN number/version as the one listed on the virtual bookstore. No other version is acceptable.
