Participate in the new and voluntary OCHS Summer Reading Program to earn extra credit points in your English class**, earn a ticket to a teen-only pool party, and earn entries for prizes that include an iPad mini and 2 Nook HD tablets. In previous years most English classes have had a required summer assignment that was due the first week of school. This summer you get to choose what you read and which projects to create. All English teachers have agreed to offer up to 75 points of extra credit for students who read and create book projects! We have an extensive list of creative and fun projects for you to choose from.

Attention Sophomores - If you will be taking regular English II please click here for specific suggestions for your summer reading.
