Summer Reading Program


Summer Reading Program

Dear Student,                                                                                                                                      

            Welcome to Crockett County High School; I am excited to meet you in August! I would like to invite you to participate in the Crockett County High School’s CAVS READ Summer Reading Challenge! To be a participant in the CCHS 2019 CAVS READ summer program, just follow some simple guidelines during summer break.

Step 1: Read a minimum of three books OF YOUR CHOICE that you have not previously read.

  • Of course, reading more than three books is encouraged! These books should be on an appropriate reading level, be at least 200 pages in length, and are your choice.
  • The 2019-2020 VSBA nomination list in on back of this page. If you plan on participating in the VSBA Challenge, you may get a jump start on those titles as part of your summer reading. This, however, is not a requirement.

Step 2: Complete three book review forms online.

  • To be an official participant of the CAVS READ summer challenge, you will simply complete a book review form on each of your three books. The link to the Google form is located at under the “CAVS READ Summer Challenge” tab.  You may also scan the QR Code below to access the form.
  •  All forms must be submitted online by August 10, 2019.

Step 3: Celebrate in the fall.

  • A celebration will be held in the fall for students who have completed the above criteria.

We hope you will join us for a summer of great reads! If you have any questions, please see or email Mrs. Nichols, CCHS Librarian. (

Happy reading,

Mrs. Nichols, CCHS Librarian
