A Note of Thanks

Mr. Kahl and the Helix School District would like to give the utmost thanks to the parents, community members, teachers, staff, and students for the success of the 2017 academic awards ceremony! It was a wonderful night of celebrating Helix School Districts best and brightest, and without the never ending support of the community, teachers, and especially the parents, none of this would be possible. Thank you so much! (A special thanks to Cindy Wood, Lorin Kubishta, Jonathan Butler, and Martin Vito for helping put on such a  wonderful ceremony).


Mrs. DeRuwe’s 7th and 8th grade Language Arts classes took part in the Patriot’s Pen essay contest sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars.  The theme this year was The America I Believe In. Rebekah Shaw received 1st  place at the post level, 1st place at the district level, and 3rd place at the state level for a total award of $1,800.00. Sam Kubishta placed 2nd at the post level, was awarded $300.00, and Kyler Greenhalgh placed 3rd at post level and received $200.00. Good job!

Mr. Kubishta’s 11th grade US History class participated in the VFW Voice of Democracy contest. This year’s theme was My Responsibility to America. Alyssa Keene placed 1st at the post level, 3rd at district for a total of $640; Kailey Mize place 2nd at post for $300 and Allen Holden placed 3rd at post for $200. Fantastic job!
