WHEATON NORTH SUMMER READING 2018
READ a book(s). CHAT about what you read. WIN prizes.
NEW this summer: To encourage students to continue reading over the summer, the Wheaton North English Department and the Wheaton North LLC invite students to read great books of their choice all summer! Once school begins again in August, any students who have read over the summer will be invited to a casual lunchtime chat about what they read. Ice cream and awesome door prizes - including parking passes, Homecoming tickets, Prom tickets, and gift cards - will be given to students who attend and participate in this lunchtime book chat.
LOOKING FOR GREAT BOOKS? Check out the 2019 Illinois Teen Readers’ Choice Award Nominees and the Wheaton North Overdrive eBook & Audiobook Collection!
