2020 Summer Reading Lists

As the end of the school year approaches and we turn our attention to the summer, it is also time to think about summer reading. 

Each grade level at Lausanne has summer reading and, in some cases, assignments that come along with the summer reading. 

These books will be provided for your student and will be given to you on the day you are assigned to collect their personal items from campus the week of May18-20th. If you do not receive your books or are new to Lausanne, your book will be mailed to your home.

Below are the summer reading assignments for each grade level. 

Early Childhood

Lower School

The goal of summer reading is to develop the habit and love of reading. Finding a quiet time 4-5 times a week for reading will support young learners in maintaining and growing skills important in the first grade. If your child cannot yet read independently, reading with your child is just as important to develop a habit of reading. Please choose 3 to 6 books from the suggestions below and enjoy a summer of reading!
