Dear Staunton River Middle School Families,


On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year at Staunton River Middle School! I am so excited to begin a new year, and I am already proud of the hard work our students and teachers will put forth throughout this year. 


I began my career with Bedford County Public Schools as a Social Studies Teacher at Bedford Middle School and then Staunton River High School. While at Staunton River High School I also served as the Instructional Facilitator and Summer School Administrator. In 2016, I was appointed as the assistant principal at Staunton River Middle School and served until 2018 when I was named Principal. Getting to work with the students, teachers, and families of the Staunton River community as both a teacher and administrator has been a great privilege, and I look forward to another year of working together.


The middle school years are remembered by many of us as some of the most complex and awkward years of our development. Therefore, it is my goal for Staunton River Middle School to be a place where students want to be. We will work hard to maintain a safe and orderly learning environment that focuses on engaging instruction, meaningful social-emotional learning experiences, positive behavioral intervention, and relevant skill-building opportunities. Ultimately, we want to inspire our students to be life-long learners who can compete successfully on the global stage, while contributing to their community as productive citizens.


We welcome your active involvement throughout this year together. Students who are challenged and supported at home and at school are much more likely to succeed. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher any time you have questions or concerns. Also, please consider attending various school events throughout the year. Again, when we work together it is much more likely that students will succeed. 


I look forward to an exciting school year working together to ensure the success of every student. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Go Golden Eagles!


Justin Tucker, M.Ed.
