Recent News and Updates

Welcome to Welsh High School's Counselor Corner! All information on this page is in WHS's daily announcements, however, I thought this would be an easier way to execute some of the same information to parents. Feel free to contact me about other information you'd like to see on this page.

FAFSA Parent/Student Workshop

Thanks for all who came out to the FAFSA workshop for Seniors on November 5! Almost all of our seniors either completed or got their FAFSA started.

Please remember, if you have not yet finished the FAFSA, it needs to be completed as soon as possible. Completing the FAFSA is a graduation requirement.

Parents: When you complete this with your child, you will need your tax information for the 2018 tax year!
