Latest News and Announcements

Kids' Heart Challenge Has Started!

Our school is proud to partner with the American Heart Association! Last year, we participated in “Jump Rope For Heart” and this year, we are excited to launch “Kids Heart Challenge” in support of the American Heart Association! Our students are super excited to join the Heart Hero Club! Students received their Kids Heart Challenge packets on 1/16, so make sure to check their backpacks to get all the details. 😊 Over the next few weeks they will be learning about how to keep their hearts healthy and happy while raising lifesaving donations to help those with “special” hearts. Heart disease is the #1 killer in America and affects people of all ages. Our support can make a big difference!

Our goal is to have 100% of our students take the Heart Health Challenge by going online and joining our school’s team! Once they are signed up they can choose one of three goals to work on over the next few weeks – choose water over sugary drinks, exercise for 60 minutes, or do a good deed daily. The best part is, it's 100% free for students to sign up to take the Heart Health Challenge!

Joining our team is simple! Just click on the link: Anthony Spangler School Online Page – to register, make a donation and send ecards to family and friends! Your student will receive special Heart Hero thank you gifts when they raise donations! Last year we raised almost $5,000 for the American Heart Association and so this year, our goal is to raise $6,500! If we meet this goal and get at least 100 students to register online, all students will receive a free dress day on the last Friday in February!! Just for registering online (no cost!), they will earn the FREE glow in the dark members only wristband! You can also download the App by searching Kids Heart Challenge in the App store!

SBAC Testing Coming in April and May!

Our annual SBAC testing is just around the corner. The testing dates are still being finalized, but all testing for grades 3-6 will be after Spring Break in April. Most grades will be testing in May. In the meantime, help your students be as successful as possible by having them practice the test at home!

How to Access the Smarter Balance Practice Test at Home:

  • Go to Practice & Training Test at
  • Once you get to the Online Practice and Training Tests Portal pick the student interface practice training test. (The green one)
  • Make sure both guest user and session is ON.
  • Pick your student's grade on the drop down bar. It will bring your screen to all the correct grade level practice tests. You may choose any test to practice. We encourage students to practice to get exposure to the types of questions and using the tools.

Remember, getting practice with the tools will better prepare them for the actual test this spring. Thank you for your support. Please contact Ms. Ravo at with any questions or concerns.
