During the month of October our character trait is respect. Show respect for your body. Exercise and eat healthy. A strong body equals and strong mind. You should take care of yourself by eating healthy food, exercising, and getting enough rest. We hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween.
West Minico is celebrating Red Ribbon Week. We encourage our students to understand the choices we make about bullying and drugs. Our West Minico theme is "Superpowers Stand United Against Bullying and Drugs".
Today the theme is "Don't be Tricked...Drugs are No Treat! Say Boo to Drugs!" Student will wear costumes and will be judged at lunch. Remember costumes are to be dress-code appropriate, and no full face masks, you may paint your face.
The Halloween Dance "Who You Going To Call....Ghost Busters" will begin at 1:00. The Hallow-Grams will be passed out at this time in advisory classes. All students will need to show their activity card or pay $2 to attend. A movie will be showing in Mrs. Tarbet's room 10 for those not attending the dance. The dance team will perform, and the band will perform and then we will have our dance. Concession stand will be open and we will be selling nachos in the commons for $1.50 during the dance so don't forget to bring your money with you to the dance because the hallways will be closed.
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.
Study Skill Tip for the week- Choose and stick to a certain time to do your homework every day.
The quote for the week is: "If a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." by Benjamin Franklin.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
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 25th from 7:00-11:00 AM. Students need to sign up with Mrs. Claridge in room 204 to be admitted. If you need extra help our school provides this Saturday School session. Also, students need to be sure to have turned in their Saturday School permission form to their advisory teacher to allow them to attend for all classes. Advisory teachers please check to make sure all of your students have returned this important form that requires a parent signature. The next Saturday School will be held November 15th.
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.
The seventh grade team of teachers have chosen their students of the week for the first 6 weeks of school and would like to congratulate Karleen Kunzler, Gabby Paz, Waylon Blacker, Garrett Berry, Bailey Blacker, and Trevor Schultz. Keep up the good work this year.
