December Newsletter

We are entering the home stretch!

Dear Helix Community, First, looking ahead:

A reminder that Dawn Coons's last day is this coming Friday, December 15. We are so grateful for the service Dawn has given to our students and to Helix and we wish her Aloha as she makes her journey to Hawaii. Staff will gather on Wednesday and celebrate our dear colleague.

We welcome TJ Montgomery! TJ joins the MSC classroom this week. TJ has a BA in Psychology and over 10 years in the industry. Most importantly, he has a heart for this work and while spending this past week on campus completing his onboarding, he has quickly felt like a member of the Helix team. Welcome TJ!

Looking for something for your student to do over the Winter Break? Don't forget to check out our camps! Join us at our special Winter Camp at The Helix School! From December 26th to 29th. Our dedicated team has crafted a warm and inclusive environment where the students can engage in fun and enriching activities. Tailored to accommodate diverse needs, our Winter Camp offers a range of sensory-friendly experiences, including winter-themed arts and crafts, interactive games, and outdoor adventures. Embrace the magic of the season as we create lasting memories in a supportive and understanding community. Come together with us this holiday season for a joyful and inclusive winter camp experience. See the flyer below for details.

Reminder that going forward all questions regarding student activities should be directed to our Coordinator of Student Activities, Anthony Baca,

Mini-Field Day this Friday! This Friday 12/15 students will be taking another PE field trip at The Block (indoor volleyball courts) next to McInnis park! We will have a guest host Yoga Dan running yoga sessions with the students as one of the breakout groups for field day. Students should dress is comfortable clothes they can move easily in on that day. We are all looking forward to it!

Now, looking back:
The Middle/Upper School Dance was a big hit! See below for a few pictures!
If you attended our last Speaker Event, it was quite a treat! Tiffany Hammond, read her book, A Day With No Words, to the entire Helix community and then open up for questions. If you missed it, you can watch it here. Skip over the first 1:25 seconds or so. You will need to enter the passcode:

BeMe is live! By now, every family has received their invitation to the BeMe platform. Eleven of you are active. Hooray! If you need help don't forget you are able to request it through the "help" button on BeMe.

Transition has paired up with the California Highway Patrol CHIP's for a Kids Toy Drive! Just inside the front entrance you will find a large barrel and our hope is to fill it with:
New unwrapped toys for kids ranging from 0-13 years of age

This year, the toys are going to the:
-Marin Child Care Council
-Center for Domestic Peace

The last day to donate is Dec. 20th.
