We encourage our parents to use Powerschool regularly to check on their child's grades.
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.
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 you miss more than 3 days during the trimester you 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 student 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, December 5th and 12th will be our next Saturday School 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.
