Music in Our Schools

By Katie O. Anderson

Paulding County School District is proud to honor the fine arts programs in our schools. Walk into any of our schools on any day and you will find our talented students playing instruments, composing, singing, dancing, painting, sculpting, sketching, and acting.  The fine arts programs are boosted in support by our administrators, teachers, parents, and community members.  Please look at the list of events open to the public and make a point to come out and support your local schools’ fine arts programs!

If you have any questions or to find out more information about the fine and performing arts in Paulding County School District, contact Katie Anderson, the Fine Arts Coordinator at or at 770-443-8000, extension 10135
