Summer Reading Assignments for Grades 2-12

posted Jun 21, 2017, 8:23 AM by Yulia Russiyanova   [ updated Jun 21, 2017, 8:24 AM ]


Dear Families,

Attached please find summer reading assignments for grades 2-12.  As always, students should complete assignments for the grade that they will be entering. 

One thing that is different from previous years is that we ask that all required essays be sent to the appropriate teachers via e-mail rather than physical copies to the school.  Each teacher's e-mail is listed at the end of the assignment.

Happy reading and all the best for a safe summer!

Mary Prokopienko-Najjarian,
The Principal

St. John's Academy has been granted the maximum term of accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC): 6 years of accreditation with a one-day visit mid-cycle. Thank you to everyone, as it is through the constant efforts of students, staff, and families, that we are able to maintain the Academy as a place which nurtures students both academically as well as spiritually.  It is nice to receive this outside recognition!  Thank you again, as this is a great starting point for our next two decades of providing quality education to our community!

In Christ,
Mary Najjarian,
