    West Minico Middle School is offering a STEM Drones Camp this summer!  The dates are June 4-8 from 8:00 AM until noon.  This camp is offered at two levels- beginner and intermediate.  The number of students for the camp is limited, so come see Mrs. Milliron if you are interested to pick up a camp application.  Applications are due May 18th!

     Summer School forms have been handed out by Mrs. Sayer and need to be brought back immediately.  As we complete the third and final trimester more students will be notified of the mandatory completion of summer school held at East Minico this summer June 11th through July 19th. If you have been given a form, please bring it back to the office.

    Finals are being given this week with Math tests today and Science and Social Studies on Thursday.  We encourage you to finish strong and do your best!  All make-up and late work should be turned in by Friday for final grades.

     Students of the Week are chosen by their teachers based on being responsible academically and behaviorally, and by showing improvement.  Being a person who shows Warrior pride is being a person of integrity by being responsible, respectful, compassionate, caring, and modeling good school citizenship. Students who are chosen receive a certificate and recognition.    We truly believe, "The Best Kids In The World Walk Through These Doors!"  Students chosen for the week of May 18 include Allyson Vorwaller, Jim Luna, Dax Bailey, Lydia Vail, Hazen Wilson, Zaylen Zemke, Hernan Dominguez, Kysa Shippen and Hannah Matsen.  This will conclude our students of the week selections for this year.  Great job to all those students receiving this recognition by their teachers.

    Be the reason someone smiles today!  Choose to be kind and considerate towards others!

    "Just Reach One!" with Dennard Mitchell sent a powerful message to everyone.  We need to commit ourselves to REACH, the R standing for showing responsibility and respect, to yourself and to others, the E for being Empowered, knowing that we need to speak positively to ourselves, A is for acts of kindness every day you can give compliments or just say hello, C is for Compassion take his challenge and make someone feel good, H stands for Healthy and Happy Lifestyle staying away from drugs, alcohol by making positive choices.  Follow the ABC's of life with action, belief, and commitment. Our hope is to carry through on this challenge by not bullying others, by being a positive person who always makes sure you try to be a better person today than you were yesterday!  Let's have discussions in advisory on how we can carry this forward in our school.

    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 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.  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 life.  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. Computers are also available for student use during this time. During third trimester Saturday school will be held April 7th  and 21st and in May Saturday School will be held May 5th and May 19th.
    We encourage our parents to use Powerschool regularly to check on their child's grades and assignments. If you need help please contact Mrs. Sayer our counselor.
