Incoming Seniors,

For your Summer Reader Project, you will read at least TWO (2) books over the summer. You will illustrate a quote / passage for the first book you read. For the second book you read, you will write a book review. These projects will be due the first day of the 2021-2022 school year to your respective 12th grade English teacher.

If you have any questions or concerns about the following instructions or requirements, please email:

Book #1 – Illustrate the Text

Step 1: Choose, and read, one of the six English Literature books below. We’ve included PDF links to each book for easy access.

 

Book Title Author Online Link Pride and Prejudice (1775) Jane Austen https://www.gutenberg.org/files/1342/old/pandp12p.pdf Wuthering Heights (1847) Emily Bronte https://www.ucm.es/data/cont/docs/119-2014-04-09-Wuthering%20Heights.pdf Heart of Darkness (1899) Joseph Conrad https://www.gutenberg.org/files/219/219-h/219-h.htm To The Lighthouse (1927) Virginia Woolf https://opentextbc.ca/englishliterature/wp-content/uploads/sites/27/2014/10/To-the-Lighthouse-Etext-Edited.pdf Murder on the Orient Express (1934) Agatha Christie http://detective.gumer.info/anto/christie_8_2.pdf The Hobbit (1937) J.R.R. Tolkien http://www.jrbooksonline.com/PDF_Books_added2009-2/LordOfTheRings.pdf

 

Step 2: Choose one favorite quote or passage from the book. Copy the quote/passage on your paper, then do your illustration. You may illustrate on regular computer paper or a poster board.  You may paint or draw by hand. You also have the option of using any computer design program to make your illustration.  Be as creative as possible!

Book #2 – Write a Book Review

Step 1: Read any book of your choosing, as long as it is appropriate for a school setting. The book must range from 200 – 250 pages.

 

Step 2: Write an original review of the book you’ve read using the Book Review Template that is attached. You can print the form out and fill it in, you can copy the format on a sheet of paper and fill it in, or you can type your own using the same format.

 

Things to keep in mind when writing your review:

  • Don’t give away the book’s ending when writing your summary! The review will likely be seen by other students, so you don’t want to spoil the book for them.
  • You can see examples of book summaries on the book jacket/back of the book, on sites like barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com, and goodreads.com. Remember, these examples are mentor texts for you to model your summary – do not copy these examples to use as yours.
  • Finally, write your recommendation for the book. Why did you like it? Who else might like reading it?
  • Other people will be reading your reviews, so make sure to write neatly!

Summer Reading Project Requirements 9TH GRADE

All students are required to complete both Summer Reader project tasks BEFORE the 1st day of the 2020-2021 school year. These two project tasks will count as 40% of your grade for the first nine weeks. Your English I teacher will assign the dates that each project is due when you come back to school. If you have any questions or concerns please email either one of your 9th grade English teachers:
Mr. Carlos Limon = climon@harmonytx.org
Mrs. Alejandra Ovando = aovando@harmonytx.org

Project Requirements:

• Every student will read 2 books in total for the Summer Reader Project. One book will be assigned by your teacher and the other will be a student-choice book.
• Every student will complete 2 projects: One Book Review and One Illustration Review.

Book Choice #1 – Teacher Choice – Please purchase or rent one of these two books to read:
Sycthe by Neal Shusterman or Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
Book Choice #2 – Student Choice: The second book is a free choice for students to pick whichever book interests them the most; however, the book must have a minimum of 250 pages and must be of appropriate nature and content for school setting.

If you have any doubts about your book choice, please email either one of the 9th grade English teachers for approval or confirmation.
**These two books do not have to be in print format. You can buy them with your iPad, Kindle, or Nook, or find a version of them online.

Wow, I am really busy in the summer! How can I find time to read TWO books?

• Reading before bedtime is a great way to get in quality, daily reading time. It helps you relax and wind down from your busy summer day.
• Carry your books everywhere-read while you are at the carwash, running errands, waiting in line at a store, at the beach or pool, or waiting to get picked up or picking up a family member from dance class, taekwondo or summer day camp! Remember, listening to an audio book version is also available.
• Don’t RUSH to finish-take your time-read a little bit every day and ENJOY IT!

Project 1: Book Review (Use teacher-choice book)

• Use the 9th Grade Book Review Template found below for your review. You can print the form out and fill it in, you can copy the format on a sheet of paper and fill it in, or you can create a Word File/Google document while using the same format and instructions.
• The 9th Grade Book Review Template has been attached to this Summer Reader handout. A teacher-made example has also been attached if you feel you need a reference or a guide.
• Remember, the review will likely be seen by other students, so you don’t want to spoil the book or ending for them.
• Also, you can see examples of book summaries or recommendations on the book jacket/back of the book, on sites like barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com, and goodreads.com. Remember, these online or print examples are mentor texts for you to model your summary or recommendation – do NOT copy any examples from the internet or in print because this will be considered plagiarism, and the assignment will receive an automatic zero.
• Please know that your English teacher wants to get to know your unique thoughts and writing style, so believe in your own ability to explain and create a good summary/recommendation.

Project 2: Book Illustration: (Use student-choice book)

• You will need to choose your favorite quote from your book that demonstrates your author’s unique writing style or any personal beliefs. Make sure your quote is at least 2 complete sentences minimum or 5 complete sentences maximum. Please select a quote that has meaningful word choice or comments on a significant topic or situation.
• Add the title of the book and author. Then, copy the quote (include page # and chapter #) and then create an illustration to decorate or help visualize these words. Your original drawing or painting can focus on a specific scene surrounding or representing the quote; you can be inspired by the internet but avoid copying other original work to avoid plagiarism.

• The size of the design is up to you, but you may choose to create your illustration on a regular 9 x 11 piece of paper, on a poster, or even a canvas of your size.
• On the back of your illustration, please explain why you chose these lines to best represent your author’s writing style or your own personal beliefs. (3 sentences minimum and 5 sentences maximum)
• Remember, this is an illustration, so you must add color effectively to attract your reader’s attention; you may also use a black and white charcoal/pencil color scheme if this is your preference. Please see the Teacher-made Example to gain an idea of what a strong Book Illustration should look like and contain.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Harmony Public Schools is committed to providing your child with the best possible education. To do that, we need to hear from them about our district, our schools, and the education we provide. That’s why we’re asking students to take our School Culture Survey.

The survey asks for feedback on student support, academic preparation, safety and behavior, school leadership, and family involvement. The results will help us determine our strengths, identify opportunities for improvement, and develop responsive action plans.

The survey is open March 23, 2021 – April 9, 2021. Students in grades 6-12 will have an opportunity to take the survey at school. Although they will use their student ID to access the survey, their responses will be strictly confidential.

We’re partnering with independent research and communications firm K12 Insight to administer the survey and compile the results. No one from the district or your child’s school will know how your child responds.

With your child’s candid feedback, I’m confident we can shape the right futures for the district and our schools. Thank you for being a part of the Harmony Public Schools family.

Sincerely,

Alan Chetin

Principal

For more information about the survey, please contact HSE front office at 956.791.0007

2) The application is open to any interested 8th grade student from any school and can be accessed by clicking on this link. The application must be completed and submitted by February 5th, 2021.

3) Students interested in applying for the ECHS must also submit one of the following:

  1. a) The Reenrollment Form (scholars who currently attend HSA-Laredo)

2019–20 School Report Card

The 2019–20 School Report Cards (SRCs) are now available on the Texas Education Agency’s website. The purpose of the SRC is to inform parents and guardians about a campus’ individual characteristics and its academic performance. Due to COVID-19, all campuses and districts received a label of Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster for the 2019–20 school year. Therefore, several data points have not been updated, including STAAR® and academic growth data.

If you are unable to access the report electronically and would like a paper copy of the report, please contact your school and ask for a paper copy of the 2019-2020 School Report Card.

Dear Esteemed Harmony Parent,

Attached you will find a copy of the State of Texas 2019–20 School Report Card for Harmony School of Excellence-Laredo. This report is required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures. Due to COVID-19, STAAR® assessments were cancelled for the 2019–20 school year. Therefore, several data points have not been updated, including STAAR® and academic growth data.

The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in the enclosed “2019–20 School Report Card Definitions.” The report for our school may or may not have all the information described because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle, or high school.

State law requires that the School Report Card display information about the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.

The School Report Cards can be found online at

https://tea.texas.gov/Student_Testing_and_Accountability/Accountability/State_Account ability/Performance_Reporting/School_Report_Cards

A more complete report about Harmony School of Excellence-Laredo, the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR), is available by contacting my office or can be accessed online at

https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/perfreport/tapr/index.html

Please contact me if you have any questions concerning this report card. Thank you for your continued support of Harmony School of Excellence-Laredo.

Sincerely,

Ahmet Cetin

Principal

Estimado Padre de Familia:

Adjunto a esta carta encontrará una copia del reporte de las Calificaciones Escolares del Estado de Texas 2019–20 para Harmony School of Excellence-Laredo. Estas Calificaciones Escolares son requeridas por la Legislatura del Estado de Texas y preparadas por el departamento de educación estatal. Este reporte debe ser mandado a los padres o al guardián/mentor de cada estudiante inscrito en una escuela pública. Estas calificaciones ofrecen información concerniente al progreso académico de los estudiantes y también información sobre el número de inscripciones estudiantiles, tamaño promedio del salón escolar, y gastos escolares.

La ley estatal requiere que la información en estas calificaciones sea diseminada. Usted encontrará una breve descripción en el adjunto “Definiciones de las Calificaciones Escolares 2019–20.” El reporte que ha recibido puede o no contener toda la información descrita en estas definiciones pues el reportaje de estos datos depende de si la escuela es una primaria, secundaria o preparatoria.

La ley estatal también requiere que la información sea provista a nivel del estado, del distrito escolar, y de nuestra escuela. Esta información debe ser reportada, en tanto sea posible, por grupo étnico/raza y estatus socioeconómico de los estudiantes y debe de incluir por lo menos dos años de resultados.

También puede encontrar estas calificaciones (school report card) en el internet bajo

https://tea.texas.gov/Student_Testing_and_Accountability/Accountability/State_Accountability/Performance_Reporting/School_Report_Cards

Usted puede obtener un reporte más completo sobre nuestra escuela en el informe del Reporte del Desempeño Académico de Texas (TAPR) ya sea que lo pida aquí en la escuela, o lo puede obtener en el internet bajo

https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/perfreport/tapr/index.html

Por favor póngase en contacto con nosotros si tiene cualquier pregunta concerniente a este reporte de calificaciones escolares. Le agradezco su constante apoyo de nuestra escuela.

Sinceramente,

Ahmet Cetin

Director
