    Incoming Grade 9 Books and Summer Assignments

    The English Department at Marshfield High School is excited to present this year’s summer reading program.  After surveying students this past fall, we are happy to present students with more options this year!

    Students will be assessed on reading that book (see below).

    Since we are offering many choices, students should obtain copies of their selected books from the local libraries, local bookstores, or online sources. If a student is unable to obtain a copy, please contact Patty Ridolfi, English Department Head ,via email at
    PRidolfi@mpsd.org.

    Students entering level 0 and AP classes will read additional books and/or complete additional assignments.
