Say “Hello” to our new Academic Counselor,

Upcoming Events Calendar WED (Nov 19) ‐‐ 6:30 p.m. (Theater)
WHS would like to thank the Board of Trustees for their
commitment to lower the counselor-to-student ratio with
the approval to hire new Counselor, Lauren Schmidt.
Lauren brings over 12 years of educational
experience in the field of School Counseling
spanning grades K-12. She received her BA in
Psychology from California State University of
Long Beach and my MS in Educational Counseling
from National University in San Diego.
Loren grew up in Santa Rosa, moving away for
school and has recently returned home to raise
kids and enjoy being closer to family and to enjoy
the outdoors. Since returning to Northern California,
Lauren has worked in the Windsor School District
at several different sites (WMS, WOA, and Cali)
experiencing the diverse student population and the supportive staff members
serving them.
