School Counseling Mission Statement

Kay Pace School of the Arts’ guidance program seeks to provide a foundation of knowledge for our students to achieve academically, personally/socially and to meet college/career goals through the integration of the arts in order to become productive citizens in society.  School Counseling Goals 

The school counseling program will focus on the following achievement, attendance and behavioral goals this year. Details of activities promoting these goals are found in the curriculum, small-group and closing-the-gap action plans.










Greetings Parents/Guardians:
We will conduct guidance sessions regarding the Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) bullying policy with all of our students. We will adhere to the policy that is outlined in the CCPS Student Handbook. Please review this policy with your child. The handbook is available on the county website, www.clayton.k12.ga.us​ ( search for student handbook). We will commemorate National Red Ribbon/Anti-Bullying Week during the week of October 23-31, 2019. Please feel free to use the resources below to support your discussions with your child. Thank you in advance for helping us to educate both the hearts and minds of our students. It is our endeavor to ensure the safety of all of our students.

Best Regards,

Ms. Cannon

Red Ribbon is intended to be fun AND effective. Here are 5 ways to celebrate:
 
  1. Communicate with children about the importance of staying drug-free and the meaning behind this year's theme:"Life Is Your Journey. Travel Drug-Free." Also, don't forget to Lock Your Meds. Secure your medication, take regular inventory and properly dispose of unused or expired medication.
  2. Educate, educate, educate. It's not just about wearing red. Here are some curriculum ideas by grade level. Check out this online course for high school students on prescription drugs. Here's a great info-graphic about Red Ribbon Week.
  3. Enter our photo contest. It's a fun and effective way to get the conversation started and it also supports schools across America.
  4. Make it social. Show your support for Red Ribbon on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.
  5. Take a stab at creating next year's theme. You'll get national recognition and lots of free Red Ribbon merchandise.
