Summer Reading Lists

Summer Reading Lists!

Summer is a great time to kick back, and spend some time reading! All students coming into O’Neill in August of 2018 are expected to read at least 3 books of their choice over the summer. You must read one fiction title, one nonfiction title, and then for your third, it is totally up to you.

In case you have trouble coming up with titles of your own, we have suggested reading lists for both grades.

7th Grade Suggested Reading List

8th Grade Suggested Reading List

Downers Grove South 9th Graders

Students who will be attending Downers Grove South High School next year can find their reading list here . Incoming 9th graders are required to select one title from the list to read. It is recommended, although not mandatory, that students purchase a copy of their book, so they have it when they need it at the beginning of the school year.
