Summer & Fall 2021
How to Order Books Fall & Summer 2021
Here are the steps to follow for the book ordering procedure:
1. Go to the Book List page (at the bottom of this page) of your student's grade level and identify the books and platforms they need for their summer and school year courses. Foreign Language, Music, and AP courses are on separate pages. (If a course your student is taking does not appear on any list, then no book or platform is required.)
2. Make a book list of only the courses your student is taking. We have provided a basic list per grade to guide you through this process. As some course enrollments may not be confirmed until June or later, order only the items you know for sure, you can order later when pending courses are confirmed. You'll need the list as a reference when ordering at the bookstore. Note which ones say they are distributed by TASIS Dorado. Those items will be assigned to students in August and charged to your account; you do not need to do anything to request or order those items.
3. Summer Readings. Below is a link to the list of summer readings for grades K-12. They can all be found at Libreria Contemporanea. On their website, Elementary readings are on one page, Secondary readings can also be found on each grade level’s page.
4. Visit the Libreria Contemporánea website and click on the TASIS Dorado page and find your student's grade level. AP, Foreign Language, and Music course books are on separate pages here as well.
5. Select the materials you need from the list you made and process your order. (Note: as stated above, some items are provided by TASIS Dorado in August. Membean, SSL platforms, and certain AP books will be provided and student accounts will be charged at that time. Libreria Contemporánea will not provide these items.)
6. Choose your delivery option: shipped to your home or store pickup.
7. That’s it! Remember to order any pending items in July, so they are available when needed in August.

TASIS Dorado is committed to the premise that learning is a lifelong process; the school encourages all learners to be active and curious throughout the school year and beyond. We also recognize that changes in summer schedules, including travel, vacations, camps, academic programs, family time, and – for older students – work and volunteer activities, mean that structuring time for learning can be challenging. We support our students’ and families’ needs and encourage them to take a break, recharge, and enjoy new activities during the summer months. However, research has shown that without exposure to reading, writing, and math during the extended summer break, students suffer from “summer amnesia” when they return to school in August. For that reason, we strongly encourage all our families to support their students’ learning through our summer vacation learning guidelines while still enjoying the summer. We want all students to return to school energized, confident, and motivated as they begin the new year!
