The St Joseph High School faculty feels that reading should become a lifetime habit. Every student at St Joseph High School receives a summer reading list according to his/her grade level. We encourage regular reading beyond the requirements. Enrichment as well as enjoyment should result from this supplementary reading. We recommend that the required books be read carefully and notes taken. Testing will take place within the first two weeks of school. Teachers are required to incorporate a “summer reading” grade that is 10% of the first quarter grade.
