Meet the Principal

  • Kelli Pope


    My name is Kelli Pope, and I have the privilege of serving as principal at Clinton Park Elementary. I grew up in Clinton and attended Clinton Public Schools. After graduation, I attended Mississippi College earning my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Elementary Education. Later I returned to MC to earn a Specialist degree in Educational Leadership. I have worked in the Clinton Public School District for 21 years serving as a 3rd grade teacher, intervention specialist, and assistant principal. I am married to Michael Pope, and we have two children. Lucy is thirteen and attends Clinton Junior High. James is eight years old and attends Northside Elementary.

    If you have questions or concerns about Clinton Park, please contact me by email at [email protected] or at 601-924-5205. I am looking forward to a great year at the Home of the Smallest Arrows! Thank you for entrusting us with your children!

Accelerated Reader

  • AR logo

    We want our students to develop a lifelong love for reading at Clinton Park!
    Accelerated Reader is a computer-based reading program aimed to motivate students to set and meet reading goals. This program allows students to read a book and take a computerized comprehension test while at school. Points are awarded for each test the student masters. Prizes are awarded for these accumulated points.
    Students are introduced to the AR program once they have developed fluency with basic sight words (usually about 100 words).
