Message From Our Principal
Dear Midway Elementary School Community,
I want to introduce myself as the new principal of Midway Elementary School. I am honored to join the Mustang Family. I can assure you that I share the school community’s commitment to providing a high-quality education for each student.
I am a father of four and a husband to the love of my life, Michelle. Michelle is a special education teacher at Rocky Creek Elementary. My youngest daughter is a sixth grader at Lakeside Middle School. My youngest son is a recent graduate of River Bluff High School and will be attending Newberry College. My oldest daughter attends USC Beaufort, and my oldest son is currently working at Michelin. I am a “seasoned” educator and principal. My career has provided me with many opportunities to make a difference in so many lives. I have been part of two National Blue Ribbon
Schools and a Palmetto’s Finest School. It is my goal to continue the tradition of academic excellence, provide effective communication to parents and have transparency in all areas for our school community.
My recent conversations with parents and staff have given me great insight into the school culture/climate. It is clear that Midway Elementary School is a family that values the close relationships between students, staff and parents. I want you to know that this “treasure” will remain a priority during my tenure as the principal at Midway Elementary. To the students, I can not wait to meet each of you! I hope you are enjoying your summer, reading books and spending time outdoors.
I want you to know that I love dogs, legos, art, reading, and I have never lost a race or basketball game to a student! I am all Gamecock, so please no orange clothing. My favorite subject (besides lunch, recess and PE) is definitely Math. In closing, please know that my door is always open and I am here for the same reason as you – your child. I look forward to celebrating many successes this year. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Thank you in advance for your support.
Dr. Timothy Carnahan
