Principal's Message

Welcome back for a great year at Thomson McDuffie Middle School and thank you for visiting our website.  Our teachers and staff are excited about the coming year.  We are dedicated to providing the best education to the students here in McDuffie County.  Our staff is working hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all of our students. Through innovative teaching practices and focusing on relationships, I am confident that our students will be successful both in the classroom and in life.
To help your child be a better learner, talk to them about taking pride in their learning.  Encourage them daily to be responsible for their own learning.  Spend time with them discussing school and the importance of getting a good education.   Parents and teachers working together to better our students is the key to their success. 
I look forward to working with this community and serving as the principal at TMMS.  I encourage all of our stakeholders to take a positive role in the education of our children.   Thanks again for visiting our site, and let’s keep “McDuffie on the Move”. 
Mr. Barry Joiner, TMMS Principal
