Homework doesn't have to be hard! Invite parents to a Winter Workshop for help.
We know that with new curriculum comes a learning curve. That's why we're equipping parents to be at-home experts in Eureka Math and EL. K-8 parents are invited to attend our winter workshops ( Spanish) to learn more about their child's math and reading lessons. Workshops are free and include free dinner and childcare for all attendees. Due to limited space, advance registration is encouraged.
