Helix Elementary celebrated two more character traits yesterday at our Purposeful People awards assembly! Our little Grizzlies have been working hard on empathy and perseverance over the past two months and we could not be more proud of them. Our character trait for February will be HONESTY! Parents, be on the lookout for a paper coming home with fun ways to practice honesty at home! Thank you to Mr. Murray and the band for bringing the energy, Mrs. Curtiss’ 5th grade class for leading the assembly, and Mrs. Morris for putting it all together!

Helix School District Parents and Guardians - Our online app and webpage have been updated to include our most recent calendar of events. The events section is now linked to the Helix School District Google Calendar and will have the most up-to-date information of school and sporting events. The EVENTS section gives you a 4-day view of scheduled events, and the “See All Events” button goes to the complete calendar. I am hopeful that this will provide better communication to our parents and the community about our upcoming activities. Download the mobile app on the Apple Store or Google Play!
