During the month of November our character trait is citizenship. We are considered citizens of our community and of our school at West Minico. As responsible citizens we should strive to make our school atmosphere positive and the best it can be. November is also a month to be thankful for family friends and our school community.
By the end of today we would like each student in advisory to make a handprint out of colored paper and write five things they are thankful for on each finger and write their name on the palm. We will then make these into a turkey in the commons to show what we are thankful for.
Ski Club will have an informational meeting December 1st during advisory and to hand out registration forms. Ski club nights are Thursdays starting January 8, 2, and 29th then February 12th and 26th and finishes on March 5th. Registration is limited to the first 60 students with paid $130 registration fee and paperwork completely filled out. Registration for ski club starts December 2nd at 7:30 AM in Mrs. Dietz room 17.
There will be no Saturday School tomorrow.
Our Renaissance Assemblies for academic excellence will be held on Wednesday, November 26th.
Our wrestler have their home meet on Tuesday, November 25th. We would like everyone to show their spirit by wearing their Warrior Pride shirts and blue and gold that day.
The beginning of a new trimester is a great time to set new academic goals. Don't make the same mistake, by doing the same thing you've always done. To improve you must make changes to what you have done in the past or you will get the same thing you have always gotten.
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 it is received on our school website.
The quote for the week is: "If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you."
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
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.
The next Saturday School will be held December 6th from 7:00-11:00 AM. Students need to sign up by the Wednesday before Saturday school with Mrs. Claridge in room 204 to be admitted. If you need extra help our school provides this Saturday School session extra help session for you. Sessions will be also held December 13th.
We are offering after school tutoring on Tuesdays and Wednesday from 3:25 until 5:00 for students who need to recover credits or make up credit time due to excessive absences. Student need to bring back the form signed by a parent.
To be good citizens is to contribute back to our community. The Mini-Cassia Christmas Council was very thankful to receive over 2,200 cans from West Minico. This food will feed many families over the holiday season. A special thank you to John Inouye, Morgan Walton, Sierra Baker, and Analisa Carter for loading all the cans yesterday and then unloading them again on their day out of school. Mrs. Dietz was truly thankful for their dedication to this worthy cause.
