How can we be down to 1 month in this year?!  Wow!  What an incredible senior class we are sending off to start their next chapter!  I have lots of work planned over the summer before we welcome our 200+ new freshmen in August!

We had nearly 50 students participate in the Gateway Challenge this year!  Two students read EVERY SINGLE BOOK on the list!  Final prizes are going out this week.  The winning book for the state of Missouri was Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.  The majority of our Helias students loved this book, as well. 

The school year may be wrapping up, but the Library Squad still has two big events planned...a Harry Potter interactive movie night on May 4th and a summer book swap the week before finals.

How lucky I am to have the best job in the world! 
We are excited to have you visit the Helias Catholic High School Library/Media Center.  We hope you will come often to check out books, do research or study, relax, have some coffee or tea, or just play games and visit with friends.  The information below will help you get to know our library better.
