Summer Reading Assignment
Choose any 2 books from the Summer Reading List (file below). For each book you read, fill out the appropriate Summer Reading Form (Book Report Fiction or Book Report Non-Fiction). Please bring the completed forms to class on your first day of school (August  14th).
Students may also want to consider reading books from this list for their own enjoyment.

In addition, in lieu of one of the books, students may also choose to participate in a museum or cultural visit with their parents.  To do this, they must have proof of attendance and complete the Museum Visit Form.
Online study and practice is recommended, and one of the best places to study online is by using www.khanacademy.org. Use your @mymail.lausd.net address when logged into KhanAcademy, please and do Mastery Challenges at each level at and below your current course level.
