JUNIORS, if you’re taking AP Language next year, the summer reading is “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarcertation in the Age of Colorblindness” (The New Press, 2010) by Michelle Alexander. You will not have to write on the book during the summer, but you should take sufficient notes to be able to discuss the book and write an in-class essay when school resumes in August. This is a powerful and highly engaging book on racial justice and a great example of the kinds of arguments we will be examining and doing ourselves in AP Language. If you have any questions about this assignment, contact Mr. Mahoney at email@example.com or Mr. Bearson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
YEARBOOKS WILL NOT be available until early August. Visit the Rio Mirada for more details or contact Mr. Mahoney at email@example.com. Yearbooks CAN still be ordered online at Yearbook Order Center – use school code 7547.
Transcripts can be requested by visiting the Registrar’s page on Rio’s website. There are separate instructions for seniors, undergrads and former students.
Contact Ms. Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org for help securing a work permit. Remember, you do not need a work permit to apply for a job. You need one once an employer has offered you a position.
