The quote for the week is "The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra." by Jimmy Johnson.
There is a Saturday School starting at 7:00 until 11:00 February 6th for students to help their grades. Please be sure to bring work for the entire 4 hours. If you need the teacher to leave something you must talk to your teachers. First time students must have a parent permission. Remember teachers don't give grades you earn them. The end of the trimester is coming up quickly. Only two Saturdays before grades are posted for second trimester. Think ahead!
Student Council is now selling Val-O-Gram messages with a treat now through Wednesday, February 10th for delivery before the Valentine Dance on Friday February 12th. The Valentine Dance will be a dress up dance and we would like boys to wear collared shirts and dress pants and the girls to wear a dress or a skirt. It is a nice day to look your best.
Our basketball teams will travel to OLeary today. Good luck teams!
We are looking forward to the numerous fun activities the Sources Of Strength group has put together for this week to promote awareness that help our students be happy and healthy. There is also an instagram challenge to post a picture of them with their positive friend at WMSOURCESOFSTRENGTH our school instagram account for everyone.
Be the reason someone smiles today! Choose to be kind and considerate towards others!
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
We encourage our parents to use Powerschool regularly to check on their child's grades.
We would like to remind our parents that we offer after school tutoring for all students neededing to improve their grades every Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:15 until 5:00 PM. Parents may request this exra help for their child.
All activities and school announcements are on the West Minico School website at all times and are updated daily, so check it out if you ever have any questions about school activities. School closure information will also be updated as soon as received on our school website.
Our school custodians work very hard to make our school look nice. We would appreciate everyone picking up after themselves in the commons area and hallways. Please take pride and do your part to make sure our school is the best.
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.
We would like to remind everyone that Minidoka County School District has an attendance policy. If students miss more than 3 days during the trimester they are required to make up time or lose your credit. It is very important to be in class each day to be successful.
Our student council has a special request to all students returning to West Minico this year; If you see someone who is struggling to make friends or being bullied because he or she doesn't have many friends or is shy or not dressed in the coolest of clothes--Please step up! Say hi or at least smile at them or talk to them in the hallways and commons area. You never know what that person might be facing outside of school. Your kindness might just make a big difference in someone's like. Maybe even your own.

Saturday, February 6th and 20th will be our next Saturday School dates starting promptly at 7:00 until 11:00 AM here at West Minico. There will not be a sign-up this year, but students must have a parental permission form signed. Forms are in the office or with teachers. If you have failing grades and need to turn in late work this is usually the opportunity to help your grade. Students must bring sufficient materials to work on during the four hour period. You must have everything with you as the lockers and teachers will not be available to gather materials. You must be responsible and doors will close at 7:10 AM. Take advantage of this opportunity if you have failing grades or want to improve your grade. This is not punishment, but a chance to help improve your grade.
