Required English Department Summer Reading

Every student is expected to complete the summer assignment linked below that corresponds with their upcoming class selection.  

Students may either purchase the book (new or used) or borrow from the public library; however, all students should come to English class on the first day of school with their required reading text and annotations. All teachers will be assessing students within the first few days of class over their reading. Assessments may include, but are not limited to, essays, objective tests, written analyses, etc.

AP Physics 1 – Mr. Rott

Before we convene in August, there is a summer assignment for students to complete. This assignment is mathematical in nature and is designed to prepare students for the level of mathematical work that will be expected of the AP Physics 1 course.  Specifically, it will cover the subjects of simple trigonometry and vectors. 

Linked below students will find the document that contains the study materials, the course work, and the answer pages you will need to fill out and turn in at the beginning of the school year.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly at jrott@brebeuf.org.

AP Chemistry – Mrs. Esteb

Students should be on the lookout for an email from Mrs. Esteb containing an invite to the AP Chemistry Google Classroom page.  Once a student accepts the invitation, go to the page and find the Summer Assignment unit.  Students will be responsible for completing the summer assignment before classes meet in August. This summer coursework is designed to be a review of some of the basic chemistry concepts students should be proficient with before entering AP Chemistry. 

If you do not receive an invitation to our AP Google Classroom page, please email Mrs. Esteb at resteb@brebeuf.org and she will get you connected.
