Summer Reading & Enrichment Activities

Summer Reading

The links below are book recommendations by grade and course level. These books are not required reading, no graded work will be attached to the reading, and student choice is highly encouraged.  Our hope and goal is that students are simply reading.

Please note: some of the works may contain themes or language that might be upsetting to some readers; it is highly recommended that students and parents/guardians preview a work before making a selection.

Enrichment Resources

In addition to reading, we encourage all students to continue their learning over the summer. 

  • Grade level resources may be accessed through your student's Clever sign-on, and resources are updated frequently. 
  • We also encourage all students to participate in the 2020 Alabama Summer Learning Challenge from now through July 31. Through this challenge, students are exposed to thousands of online resources that may help continue your child's learning and skill building throughout the summer. Click here for more information.

Students in Pelham City Schools have access to a digital library through OverDrive. Our digital library offers students a wide variety of eBooks and audiobooks to check out at home or on the go. You can access the site through our school system link and Student ID number. Find out more here.
