Stop Summer Reading Loss-Participate in Summer Reading Programs!
Research studies show that students who read over the summer maintain or increase their literacy while those who do not read over the summer significantly regress and return to school in the Fall less prepared than when they left.  Fortunately, there are three summer reading programs available to BHS students:
The extra-credit PWCS voluntary summer reading program for all students, 

the Pre-AP and AP summer reading/assignments, and the
