The mission of the J. Blaine Blayton Elementary School counseling program is to work in collaboration with staff, families and the community to provide comprehensive, developmentally appropriate, and proactive services to meet the academic, career, personal, and social needs of all our students so that they can achieve their fullest potential and become responsible, productive citizens.
If you have any questions about the school counseling program or have any concerns about your child, please feel free to contact Blayton’s professional school counselor, Lynette Nice, at 565-9300 ext. 41233.
