Summer Assignments - 2018

  • Below are the summer assignments for English language arts, AP Statisticshonors history, and Virtual High School AP classes.

    English Language Arts

    It is an exciting time for Diman as we delve into the One Book, One School summer reading adventure.  This year, every student at Diman school will be reading the same non-fiction selection: Me to We: Finding Meaning in a Material World.  It was thoughtfully selected due to its ease of reading and its relevance to current societal values.  As a result, we hope that this selection will lend itself to many rich discussions at the beginning of the school year.  Please note that this reading adventure will include a graded reading packet as part of the summer assignment for ELA.  

    To start, please read the attached document for assignment specifics.  The requirements for honors and AP level classes may differ.

    Please also note that this summer assignment will be due on the first day of school.  All sophomores, juniors, and seniors should be prepared to submit a completed packet.  Incoming freshmen should be prepared to complete a reading assessment.

    Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the ELA Department Head, Mrs. Trish Beaudoin, at tbeaudoin@dimanregional.org.  For Special Education inquiries, please contact Director of Special Education, Mrs. Debbie Pacheco, at dspacheco@dimanregional.org.
