The WOHS community service forms are now “fillable” so students can download and type in their info, rather than printing, handwriting, and then scanning the document back to their counselor (we also still have hard copies for students to pick up in guidance if they want too).


Mrs. Bateman has found an awesome website for students to use to find local in-person and virtual volunteer organizations!


All of this information can be found on the WOHS community service website page.

Congratulations to Guidance Counselor Sylvia Rountree, who will be retiring on October 1st. A new counselor will not be added which will result in a shifting of the student alpha range for all counselors effective October 1st.


Seniors will be able to obtain recommendation letters from either their new or old counselors, but it is recommended that you request those letters sooner rather than later.


Request letters here.
