Math and Reading STAAR

On Monday and Tuesday, 3rd and 4th graders will be taking their STAAR Math and Reading tests. Please help prepare your child to be successful by ensuring that he/she:

  • goes to bed early and gets a full night's sleep
  • eats a hearty and healthy breakfast in the morning
  • wears comfortable clothes
  • receives words of encouragement from you!


Field Day is this Friday! We are looking forward to a fun-filled day! Please remember...

1. Per District policy, any adults who visit a school campus must be scanned through our Raptor system and wear a visitor's badge throughout the duration of their visit. This policy will be enforced on Field Day. If you have already been scanned through our Raptor system this year and will be visiting on Field Day, we will have a pre-printed badge ready for you when you check in at the front of the building, as long as you have notified your child's teacher ahead of time that you will be attending. If you or any other relative have NOT been scanned through Raptor this year, you must do so either on Field Day, or you may stop by the office anytime before then to have your ID scanned. To recap...all visitors must check in at the front of the building, and all visitors must wear a blue visitor's badge.

2. In the past, siblings have been prohibited from attending Field Day. While we prefer that this event is a special time for Spencer students only, this year, younger siblings will be allowed to attend only if a) they are closely supervised by a parent/guardian, and b) they do not participate in any of the Field Day events. These guidelines must be followed in order to ensure safety for all students, staff, and visitors.
