English Department




Staten Island Technical High School believes very strongly in the social-emotional well being of our students. We have instituted assignment free breaks so that a break can be a reset!


However, reading can be a GREAT way to relax, so this pamphlet gives you some of our English Department's favorite summer reads without any assignment attached. Click this link to view our pamphlet: English Department Recommendations

Russian Department
If you want to get a jump start on the upcoming school year, the Russian Department is encouraging each student to complete one packet from the attached link which will be evaluated during the first few weeks of school. These packets provide you with an opportunity to practice your Russian skills. This is NOT a test. The packet should be done with care which will help your teacher evaluate your current ability and plan for reviews and progressions. For an added challenge, see what packets you may be able to complete outside your level. We encourage you to review a little each day over the summer, but this does not need to be completed by the 1st day of school.
