All incoming eleventh graders are expected to read two books over the summer; the following is a list of titles suggested by ninth grade teachers. Students are also encouraged to go to the White Plains Public Library for recommendations, as well as the Goodreads website. In September, during the first or second week of school, students will be given the opportunity to earn extra credit by writing about the books they have read.
