Eureka Math - PARENT INFO

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Eureka² homework pages are called Practice pages. Each Eureka² homework page has a companion Practice Partner page. The Practice Partner shows problems like those worked in class, and reminds students or parents of the thinking that can help students solve those problems (see sample below). The Practice Partner can be used as a guide to help students with homework.

For your convenience, we have linked all of the 1st grade-5th grade Practice Partners on the PowerSchool Parent Portal (see Digital Resources). Note that Kindergarten does not have Practice Partners or homework.

Please reach out if you have any questions.


Tracie Thomas, K-5 Math Curriculum Specialist

Lori Lopez, Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning

SPELLING BEE - 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade

Have you heard the BUZZ? The D64 Spelling Bee is back! Please see our D64 Spelling Bee Website for further details and links to registration forms. Contact Mrs. Miller (cmiller@d64.org) or Ms. King (kking@d64.org) with any questions about the Carpenter Spelling Bee.

CoVid Communicating

This year, instead of sending out an email for CoVid cases, we will be updating a slide on our website. Please bookmark this page if interested in keeping tabs of our current cases and associated homerooms. I'll leave this in my weekly updates as well, but I'll gradually move this towards the bottom of the reading material.
