Summer Reading & Assignments


The Ansin Building

Hello Students, 

One of our goals in the academic office at Lawrence is to have each student transition to the fall as prepared as possible for academic success. To help achieve this goal, the faculty at LA have put in place some ideas for what you can do over the summer to actively practice and maintain your academic skills. We believe that it is important for you to do some work over the summer to retain the gains that you have made. 

The challenge all schools face, however, is helping students find the right balance of academic work and summer ‘fun’ that should be a part of every young person’s life. Clearly, you need to spend some time during the summer months working to maintain your academic skills. That said, we also recognize that family vacations, trips, summer jobs, and just plain playtime are an appropriate and necessary part of growing up. Therefore, we leave it up to each student and family to find the amount of time devoted to summer academic work that is right for you. 

The information below is how you will access summer work. This work will be divided into REQUIRED work and OPTIONAL work to reflect our efforts to help you strike this balance. REQUIRED work is required for all students and reflects a minimum amount of work that students need to do to be prepared for the fall. The OPTIONAL work provides suggestions for what you can do to prepare for different subjects. This will be driven by your time available and your interests.   

Best Wishes for a safe and restful summer!
