Summer work???!!??!!? - August 27th 2009, 08:09 PM

Hello. Bit of an emergency here.

I should call the school, or facebook someone who goes there, but I can't quite summon the __ for that since if the answer is 'no' I'll look like a complete (and unfortunate) idiot.

Is there EVER NO SUMMER WORK for students in the summer before their juniour year? I'm only taking 2 AP classes, but it's occured to me after reading some threads on here that there probably should've been some summer work. I'm new and it's possible someone forgot to tell me.

Do public schools ever just not give summer work?
I'd assumed so, since I wasn't told otherwise. If I was wrong please tell me honestly and then shoot me.

Does your school have a website? Many high schools post summer reading and projects under the Academics section of their site. Try there; if that doesn't work, you should probably call the school or a friend who is in the same classes.

It is possible that no summer work was assigned, though. But it's always good to make sure.

Good luck.

I feel helpless for the most part,

And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

Like Jessi said, definitely take a look at your school's website. Most schools tend to put all information for summer reading and such up there.

There's definitely a chance there just wasn't any work set. I've never once been given summer work, so it's possible. [:

You could just ask somebody. Just be like ''There wasn't any summer work set, right?''. I know I would think it's perfectly normal for someone to ask that. xD

It's very possible that you might not know, especially if you registered late. My boyfriend moved up here from NJ (I live in MA) and he registered maybe a week or two before school started, and he had to do all his precalc, AP history, and english work. But seeing as you're a new student, you'll probably be given a break.

And - at least around here - most public schools assign summer work. My friend at one school has a pile of essays for English and my cousin at another school had reading and work for AP History.

when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.
