Reunions do not take place automatically. Neither the Helix High School administration nor the Alumni Association is responsible for the date, time, place, or appointment of members for reunion committees. If former classmates do not volunteer to organize their class reunion, one does not take place. We assist reunion committees with information gathered from previous reunions and class member's information from our database.
