2016 Summer Enrichment

Summer reading is not required at Kirby. However, Kirby encourages students to engage in summer enrichment exercises and recommended readings. Our summer enrichment packet includes suggestions for local learning experiences, educational games, at-home projects and experiments, and teacher-recommended movies and books.

Purchasing Books

Families purchase student textbooks and reading materials prior to the start of school on August 15th. Books are sorted by department. If you choose to purchase books before receiving your student’s final schedule in the mail, please be sure to leave them in their original packaging in case they need to be returned.

To purchase books, follow the Virtual Bookstore link below to visit Kirby’s virtual textbook store.

Some classes may also have teacher-provided materials which may be provided in class or sold at registration.
