Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Spangler Elementary School. The teachers and staff join me in saying we are happy to have you as part of our school family. We know this will be a successful and satisfying year for you. One of our main goals for the year is to help your child feel successful and achieve academic excellence. By working together as parents and educators, we can build a solid foundation of life long learners. At Spangler we take pride in our relationships with parents, and see you as a partner in the important job of educating our children. We welcome your participation and support during the school year. We look forward to celebrating with you the achievements of our students.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Warmest Regards,

Ms. Waslif

Take the SBAC Practice Test

To access the tests, go to

Click on the Student Interface Practice and Training Tests link . You will log in as a guest user in a guest session by simply clicking “Sign In.” You will then select a grade from the dropdown menu and click “Yes.” Select a test and choose your test settings. Finally, click “Yes, Start My Test.” Once you begin the test, each question will need to be answered in order to move on. When you come to the end of the test, click “End Test.” Students may take the practice test as a guest as many times as they wish. The practice tests are not scored.

Spangler Spartans are taking the SBAC Test beginning April 30 through May 18. We encourage you to follow these tips to maximize your child's testing:

Tip #1: Get your child to school on time the day of the test.

Tip #2: Make a note of test days on your calendar

Tip #3: Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep the night before the test.

Tip #4: Make sure your child has enough time to wake up fully before going to school. Just as rest is important, so is having enough time to get your child’s brain engaged and in gear

Tip #6: Make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast

Tip #7: Talk to your child about how the test went

Tip #8: Give your child a chance to practice

Tip #9 Make sure your child knows that you believe in them and to do their personal best!
