DASH Summer Reading Assignments Posted!

Greetings DASH Phantom Parent/Guardian:

Please be advised that the 2021 DASH summer reading assignments have been posted by Ms. Zamora on the “DASH Class of 2022” group on Microsoft Teams for rising DASH senior students, the “DASH Class of 2023” group on Teams for rising DASH junior students, and the “DASH Class of 2022” for rising DASH sophomore students. Access to Microsoft Teams requires logging in to office.com (or MDCPS student portal) with the student’s MDCPS credentials.  

For your reference, below are the attachments provided by DASH ELA Faculty to DASH students regarding their 2021 summer reading assignments (by grade level):

The above will soon be available on the DASH school home page as well.  Please remind your DASH Phantom to access the summer assignment for their grade level via Teams (or share the attachments linked to above with your student).  Kindly encourage your child to read the assigned text(s) and complete the assignments over the summer before the 2021-2022 school year begins in August.  The applicable grade level English teacher will be collecting student work during the first week of school.  As always, we expect that each DASH student will want to put their best foot forward in the new school year, so we thank you in advance for your encouragement and support in reminding them to complete these summer reading assignments.

We wish you and your loved ones a safe, healthy, and restful summer break!
