Incoming freshmen need to read TWO BOOKS
this summer. First, you will browse the School-Wide Summer Reading List
and sign up to read a book
. Please note that there are limited spots for each book. The book you choose will be used as part of a group discussion facilitated by an MSJ faculty member in September, and it will also be used for an English assignment. Visit the English Department Summer Reading document
and use your schedule to determine your assignment. Schedules will be shared at the Class of 2026 Parent Orientation on Tuesday, June 14, at 7:00 p.m. Those not in attendance will be mailed all necessary information.
The second book assigned to freshmen is Life in a Jar
. There are different choices for completing the assignment for this book. Access the Life in a Jar Summer Reading Project document
