Each day we are going to provide a daily quote by a famous person this month for reflection and thought and also possible discussion during advisory.
The quote for today: Make your mind up to do better, and you will...You can be anything you want to be, if you try hard. Quote by Jesse Jackson
Our Student Council and Mrs. Dietz thanks you for your participation in our school's service project to help others through your donations and canned food. The monetary donations of $900 will go to Jazmin and Jesus Avila Gomez who lost 6 of their family members in a car crash caused by a drunk driver in Mexico earlier this year. Both of these young people have attended West Minico and live in Paul. They are now attending Minico where Jazmin is a senior and Jesus is a sophomore. Secondly, the canned food donation of 1821 cans will be taken and given to the Minidoka Senior Citizen Center and they were very grateful to be recieving this donation in honor of Betty Martin a long-time Paul citizen who passed away recently. Betty spent many hours of her life helping others in our community. Also her family has a long tradition of being involved in our school district, her husband Leonard, was a and long-term Minidoka School Board Member, Randee, their son, was also a long-term school board member, and their daughter Melody Wysong is a long-time teacher at Rupert Elementary. The family appreciates our donation to this worthy cause. More importantly there are a lot of people in our community that will benefit from your donations.
This coming Saturday, April 19th we will offer Saturday School for those students who would like to help their grade from 7 to 11 AM.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
West Minico Student Council is promoting our schools community service project for a worthy cause during the month of April. It is important that we desire to give back to our community and to help others. The Mini-Cassia Food Bank has contacted us to help restock their supply of canned food or to collect donations so they can help many families from our community. Today through April 15th we will be collecting canned food supplies and or cash donations. A collection jar will be placed in each classroom today and students may start to bring canned food. Teachers will be keeping track of students who contribute to our school-wide service project and incentives are being planned. Also, collection bins will be in place for parent conferences. We appreciate your support in this worthy cause.
Also we begin our SBAC testing first part of April. Students can see the schedule in the commons or by calling for the text message @f4334 to 908-6854 or sign up for the E-Mail reminders. Remember if you have your own set of headphones you may bring them to use on the test. You can become more prepared by practicing on the Smarter Balanced website. Our testing starts tomorrow and we are excited to see how well our students do on this new test. We need to show everyone why "West is the Best!" and "Rock these Tests!"
