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.

There are two Saturday School sessions each month starting promptly at 7:00 until 11:00 AM here at West Minico. Students must have a parental permission form signed to attend. Forms were sent home with all students through advisory and additional forms are in the office. If you have failing grades and need to turn in late work this is an 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. First trimester dates are September 10th and 24th, October 15th and 22nd, November 12th and 19th.
