During the month of October our character trait is respect. West Minico has school and classroom rules that should be followed. These rules are made for you and your safety. Students who are respectful follow the rules and try to make their school a better and safer place.

Study Skill Tip for the week- It is important to be in school to be successful, absences can affect your grade. It is up to you to be responsible for making up your work.
The quote for the week is: "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can accomplish today."
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
We want all of our Warriors to have integrity. Integrity is doing the right thing even when nobody else is watching. Being able to follow your conscience instead of the crowd. Being able to think for yourself and make smart choice that are good for you.
Thanks to our Language Arts Department for providing the Kick off to Reading Assembly. We want all of our students to get caught reading and encourage students to have their reading book in every class so that if they finish their work they will be able to read. All students are expected to turn in their reading logs.
There will be a Saturday School Saturday, October 18th and 25th from 7:00-11:00 AM. Students need to sign up with Mrs. Claridge in room 204 to be admitted.
