Summer Reading 2022

It’s BACK! This summer, you will participate in the second annual “TYWLS Summer Reading Program!”  During the summer, all TYWLS high school students and staff will engage in a shared reading experience of a single text, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids.
Throughout the summer, as you read and/or after you finish reading, share and “virtually discuss” your thoughts, reactions, questions with your peers and teachers on your grade-wide Summer Reading Padlet Board or record a video reaction on our whole school Summer Reading Flipgrid. See your grade-wide Google Classroom with links and more information.
You can also access a digital copy of the text in the 2022 Summer Letter shared via your grade-wide Google Classroom!
Enjoy reading!
