Summer Reading

Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors at OPRF are required to read one of the following 24 books during summer 2018. Students made their selections and received their copies this past spring, before final exams.

All incoming freshmen should read All American Boys, by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. Copies of the book were supplied to students at the middle and private schools in the spring. 

English teachers expect all students to have completed their reading by the first day of classes on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
