    Senior Family College Night:  The WHS Counseling staff kicks off each school year with this evening directed at seniors and their families. Parents and students will be given a guided tour through the college application and admission process. The most commonly asked questions (and those that aren’t so common!) regarding the process will be answered as well.  While the target audience for this event are seniors who are embarking on this process, all families and students are invited. Presentations will take place in Spanish (5:30 p.m.) and in English (7:00 p.m.)
