New Today: (8/22) In order to encourage and support reading achievement, every student who will be entering grades six through twelve in the fall must read at least one book over the summer. The follow-up in the fall will be determined by each school. The Summer Reading lists contain suggestions for reading; although students may read any other book that is approved by their parents, except where individual schools have issued their own summer reading requirements. The Fairfax County Summer Reading Program encourages children and teens to read for pleasure during summer vacation. View the summer reading lists.
