We would like to recognize our "Students of the Week" as being role models for other students by being respectful, responsible, being concerned about academics, and compassionate towards others. Also recognition includes those who have made significant growth and who have shown perseverance in trying to become more successful. We truly believe "The Best Kids in the World Walk Through These Doors!"
We would like to remind our parents that we offer after school tutoring for all students neededing to improve their grades every Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:15 until 5:00 PM. Parents may request this extra help for their child. Computer use is available during this time.
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 like. 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.
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.
