We would like to wish Coach Perrigot and the Minico Spartan Football Team good luck in their state championship game against Skyline tonight at 8:00 at Holt Arena in Pocatello. We hope to see a lot of the Spartan's Warrior fans at the game tonight cheering on our favorite coach and team. Thanks to the Warriors for showing your spirit and support today by wearing red. Also good luck to Coach Nay and Coach Madrigal. Lets take state Spartan Nation!
8th Grade football team will have their pizza party Tuesday after school.
Our character trait for the month of November is citizenship. Being a good citizen both at school and in our community means being willing to help others and to be kind. Putting others before yourself. A good citizen is honest, respectful of yourself not only in action by what you say in "public" but by consciously thinking about your actions towards others. Showing your school citizenship is showing that you "CARE" with C standing for being courteous, saying please and thank you goes a long ways, "A" stands for being always prepared with notebooks, pencil and assignments, "R" stands for respect and responsibility of yourself, for teachers and for your classmates and school property, "E" stand for effort 100 percent of the time. Most importantly being a good citizen is having a "can do" or a positive attitude.
Students of the Week are chosen by their teachers based upon being a role model and showing improvement. Being a person who shows Warrior pride is being a person of integrity by being responsible, respectful, compassionate, caring, and show good school citizenship. Student who are chosen receive a certificate and recognition. Students of the week for week of November 10th are Malichi Marlow, Diana Hernandez, Braylond Hall, Brawlee Drage, Clarabelle Evans, Milton Hernandez, Ilyana Salinas, Tanner Lewis, Jentree Bott, and Jetta Bott.
Our girls basketball teams play at Jerome on Monday and our wrestiling team has a meet at West Minico on Monday starting at 4:30 and they'd like to see all the Warrior out in support!
School is only in session on Monday and Tuesday next week and we have an extra special half day reward to finish the ice cream fundraising rewards for students on Monday. We will be taking everyone to the new movie "Wonder" on Monday. We are asking that each of you pay $2 to your advisory teacher to attend and you will be able to purchase treats at the movie theater.
Help us get more smiles in the yearbook! It seems like everyone has a cell phone camera and the yearbook staff would like you to upload your pictures to place in the yearbook. Every teacher has the information of how to do this and posters are in the hallways. We have the next couple of months to get some candid shots and get them in the yearbook of school events.
There will be no school Wednesday through Friday of next week for Thanksgiving.
The Mini-Cassia Turkey Trot will be held here on Thursday Thanksgiving morning.
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 complements 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 comittment. 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! Lets have discussions in advisory on how we can carry this forward in our school.

During September our character trait is responsibility. Students must learn to be responsible for their own actions and realize their actions are critical for maintaining and improving themselves, friendships, family, school, community and beyond. If we do good deeds, then we can be proud of our accomplishments. If our actions cause problems, then we need to find a way to solve problems or deal with the consequences.
We would like to remind our parents that we offer after school tutoring for all students neededing to improve their grades every Tuesday and Thursdays from 3:15 until 5:00 PM. Parents may request this extra help for their child. Computer use is available during this time.
Our school character trait for September is responsibility.
Our school character trait for the month of October is respect. We can show respect to our friends by being helpful, taking turns and using kind words. We can respect our parents by listening to them and being honest. We can show respect to our teachers by listening and following directions, being prepared in class and by using works like please and thank you. We can show respect to our school by picking up trash even when it is not ours, and cleaning up our messes. You can show respect to yourself by being on time, being prepared, and by always doing your best. Remember we need to commit ourselves to "REACH" to become our very best.
