History of McClendon Elementary

  • McClendon Elementary opened its doors in 1998. This was because the student body had grown to the point that the building that is now the middle school could no longer house the kindergarten through 8th grade.

    The building is named for Carylene McClendon. She taught in Community many years, some years she served as a principal while teaching, and also she drove a bus. She was a beloved and respected educator in this community.

    In 2001, and additional wing was added to the building that included eight classrooms.
