Helias Library/Media Center

October 2017

Off & Running

After a semester of medical leave, I am back and so excited to be working with the students and staff again! We usually have 50+ students in the library before school every morning. Whether printing off papers last minute, visiting with friends over a cappuccino, or leaving their thoughts on the whiteboard tables, our Helias students put a smile on my face daily!

Gateway Awards 2017-2018

The Missouri Association of School Librarians has its list of finalists for the 2017-2018 Gateway Award. Helias students will have the opportunity to vote on their favorites with the winner to be announced Spring 2018. In November, the students will find out what the "challenge" entails and what prizes are available for those who participate. There are titles for everyone ranging from romance in Emmy & Oliver to an amazing race for a multi-million dollar inheritance in Inherit Midnight to a serial killer in Ruthless.
