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 other prizes. 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. 

Also, be sure to sign up for the Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program for more chances to win.

Details:

How do I earn extra credit in my English class?

Each approved book project is worth up to 25 points. Click here for the list of approved projects.
You can complete up to 3 projects for a total of 75 points!**
**If you have advanced or AP English, check this page for specifics about your required summer assignments. You may still complete the additional extra credit projects discussed on this page, but you MUST complete the required assignments or you will be removed from the advanced or AP class.

How do I earn a ticket to the pool party on Saturday, August 30, 7:30pm-9:30pm?

Read 2 books and complete at least 2 projects from the approved project list. Your ticket is good for you and a friend! Oldham County teens that participate in the public library summer reading program will also have the chance to earn a ticket.

How do I earn entries for the prize drawings?

You will earn one entry for each approved book project that you complete (up to 3).
You will also earn entries when you attend and participate in the Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading events
