Congratulations to the talented thespians of Tunbridge Central School’s Fifth and Fourth Grade for their hilarious production of William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night”! The performance at Northern Stage’s fancy Barrett Theatre was a smash success. Special thanks to all our stupendous students and patient parents for working so hard to memorize all those Elizabethan English lines!

By far, the most important homework in 4th Grade is independent reading. Students are expected to read for at least 20 minutes a day, five days a week (but more is great, of course!). Students are also expected to keep a Reading Journal made up of individual Book Tickets or Book Storyboards. A Book Ticket is a summary of what they are reading every two weeks (or when they finish reading a book, whichever comes first). If a book takes longer than two weeks to read, then students will summarize up to the point they’ve read. There will usually be a page of daily math homework, and sometimes projects (such as science) that will require some home study. In general, students should not expect to spend more than 30-40 minutes on homework on a given day, reading included.
