3rd and 4th Grade STAAR Dress-Up Days

Math and Reading STAAR are just around the corner. Our 3rd and 4th grade students and teachers have been working hard all year to prepare. To show our support for the endless effort they put in each day, we would like to incorporate a full week of STAAR DRESSING FOR SUCCESS for ALL GRADE LEVELS! Please help us encourage our Spencer Broncos to always do their best and achieve greatness as we make final preparations for STAAR by following the dress-up schedule below:


Super STAAR Day: Dress like a Super Star by wearing your BRIGHTEST clothing!


Movie STAAR Day: Wear your RED CARPET ATTIRE! Bow-tie, crown, 3 piece suit… dress your best!


Rock STAAR Day: Wear your favorite BAND T-SHIRT or “BE A STAR” MUSIC T-SHIRT!


Sports STAAR Day: Wear your favorite SPORTS TEAM GEAR!


All STAAR Day: Wear your favorite BALL CAP


The last day to turn in chocolate money is Tuesday, May 3. Thank you raising money for our school!

Per District Policy, a volunteer may not perform any volunteer duties until the District has obtained from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) all criminal history record information that relates to the volunteer. A volunteer is anyone who works with or supervises students during a school-sponsored activity (ie - tutor, Field Day volunteer, field trip chaperone).

If you will be volunteering at a Cora Spencer event any time between April 25 -and June 1, you must fill out a form so that the Human Resources Department can conduct the background search. Click on the link below to fill out the online form.

** Special Note: This rule only applies to those serving in a volunteer role. Visitors who are not serving as volunteers must simply have their driver's license/photo ID scanned at the front desk and wear a visitor's badge while on campus. This includes any Field Day visitors.
