Summer Reading
Summer reading is an expectation for all HHIMS students.  Students will choose a minimum of one book to read over the summer, and will complete an assignment in response to it when they return to school in August. 

 BCSD is partnering with the Beaufort County Library system to promote summer reading. We highly encourage all HHIMS students to participate in the public library’s summer reading program.  For more information, please visit:

All students will go home with a Summer Reading Game Board in May so that they can easily participate. 

Participation in this library’s program is another way for students to fulfill their summer reading requirement.  All students who complete the summer reading program through the library and submit their game cards to the library by August 1 will be exempt from this assignment.

We encourage students and their parents to work together to select a book to enjoy based on student interests.
