  • When math homework is assigned from the enVision workbook, children should complete the PRACTICE page. If you would like to complete both sides, you may (but it is optional). Thank you for your support at home!

  • Please make sure your child’s name is on all homework, notes, etc.
  • If your child is absent from school, please send in an absent note the day your child returns. Thank you!
