Summer Enrichment

Cardinal Shehan Summer Reading Program 2022

Dear Cardinal Shehan School Families,

Below are the summer reading assignments for students entering grades 2-8. Books were distributed to our current students during the last week of school.

For our new students, please call the school office at 410-433-2775 to schedule a time to pick up the required book. We are open M-Th from 8am-1pm in the summertime. 

While this is the only requirement for summer reading, we encourage all students to read daily throughout the summer. Reading is an important part of learning as it permeates all academic subject areas and reading over the summer assists students with keeping up their critical thinking and reading comprehension skills. 

Happy Summer Reading!
