At what age (if any) should a child/young adult be expected to address the envelope of a thank you note sent through the mail?

I don't have kids, and am old enough to tell you to get off my lawn. Should an intelligent junior high school student that is being forced to handwrite a thank you note be similarly forced to address the note's envelope? Does it even matter if the envelope is addressed by the child's parent?
