• Dear Parents,


    We have just begun a unit on J.D. Salinger's book Catcher in the Rye. This is one of the seminal works in 20th century American literature. It is also a good book for teenagers to read because it stresses the need to form healthy connections. However, some of the language and themes in Catcher in the Rye may be troubling to some young readers. I encourage you to review the book with your child (copies of the text are easily available online). Also, you are welcome to contact me or Carol Sales, Assistant Principal for Instructions, if you have any concerns.
