Welcome to the Sallas Mahone Counseling Department. Your school counselors are Mrs. Cannister and Mrs. Mercer. Mrs. Cannister works with students in PreK - Second Grade and Mrs. Mercer works with students in Third - Fifth Grades. Our counseling program consists of classroom counseling lessons for all students, small group counseling for some students, and individual counseling when a referral is made by a parent, teacher, or by the student.    

In addition, we are delighted to have school counseling interns from Valdosta State University. They assist us in classroom lessons, small group sessions, and individual counseling and are held to the same ethical and legal standards as state certified school counselors.  

Parents are always welcome to stop by. However, we serve students through scheduled classroom lessons, as well as small group and individual sessions. Therefore, we encourage parents to make an appointment to insure we can spend uninterrupted time with you to address your concerns. You may contact Mrs. Cannister or Mrs. Mercer at 229-333-8530.
