Principal's Message

        Mr. Darren O. Parker, Sr.

       Principal of Conway Middle School


    With great pride and honor, I welcome staff, students, parents, and the community to Conway Middle School!

    This year, we will strive for excellence.  We must become one village; ONE TEAM to ensure the success of ALL students.  With one team working together and fulfilling its role, success will happen!  As we enter the 2021 - 2022 school year, I charge each team member to become better. 

    • To the CMS Faculty and Staff – I charge you to come prepared every day to provide the best instruction to each and every student who walks through our doors. I encourage you to push students beyond their existing potential and help them to realize and achieve their dreams of being future world changers.  I also charge you to be a positive teammate and a helpful colleague.

    • To the Parents of CMS students – I charge you to be supportive of your children.  Encourage them to attend school daily, performing their absolute best!  Parents, I invite you to visit the school and keep in constant communication with your child’s teachers.  It is with you showing interest that your child will achieve greatness. 

    • To the Citizens of Conway and to the Community Partners – I charge you all to be a presence in the school and in the activities hosted by Conway Middle School.  As our community leaders, base every decision in the best interest of the future leaders of Conway, which are our students.

    • To the Outstanding Students – It begins and ends with you!  I charge you to come prepared daily, expecting to receive the instruction you seek to be successful.  I encourage you to share in the responsibility of making Conway Middle School one of the best middle schools in North Carolina.  We expect you to follow the rules and present yourself daily as a responsible and respectable scholar.  Remain focused on your dream, and keep your eyes on your future!  Remember, PREPARATION ELIMINATES FEAR AND DOUBT!

    As the leader of this great establishment, I will provide an environment that is safe, nurturing, and productive!  I will strive daily to ensure that students’ academic, emotional, and social success is at the core of every decision we make at CMS.  

    With each person of the TEAM working together, WINNING is not a surprise; it is EXPECTED!
