In preparation for the next school year, we want to make sure that you are aware of summer assignments and how to access them.  


All students should complete a summer reading assignment according to their grade and course level. In addition, there are various courses in other subjects that have a summer assignment that you are expected to complete prior to starting school in September if you have requested to register for those courses.  Mrs. Lappostato will reach out to her AP studio art students individually. 


The list of courses that require a summer assignment, as well as the K-12 Summer Reading Packet, can be found on the Summer Assignments page of the district website. Please use the below link to access all of the necessary summer assignment information for JHWMS & NHS:


The following JHWMS accelerated math classes require summer assignments that can also be accessed through the district website: Accelerated Pre-Algebra, Accelerated Algebra 1, and Accelerated Geometry.  You can use the above link or navigate there by going to our district website - Parents - NHS/JHWMS Summer Homework.


Please reach out to me or to the corresponding Department Coordinator with any questions about summer assignments.
