Dear Bulldog Families,
It is with truly mixed feelings that I announce to the community my retirement from Pasco County Schools. My final day as Principal of RBSMS will be January 3, 2022.
I have spent my entire career as an educator in Pasco County and I am fortunate to have worked with so many wonderful students, families, and educators. My career began as a Language Arts teacher at Raymond B. Stewart Middle School in 1984. Who would have thought that 36 years later, I would be retiring from the same school serving as Principal for the last nine years. Truly a full circle moment in time.
I am eager for the opportunity to spend more time with family, and for the chance to travel which I so love to do. However, I will miss my Bulldog Family and all of the special celebrations, events, and athletic games that are the heart of a middle school.
I am very pleased to announce that the next Principal of RBSMS has been selected and Mr. Josh Borders, RBSMS Assistant Principal, will be moving into the principal role upon my departure. He is ready to serve as Principal and I look forward to seeing exciting things to come. Congratulations Mr. Borders, we are proud of you!
Ms. Shae Davis, Principal

We continue to spotlight certain students throughout the month of October and November that go above and beyond and have been great role models while here at Stewart Middle School. It is not always easy to balance academics, sports, social events and home life, but these 8th graders have been able to do just that! We are very proud of how much each of the following students do add to the great school environment here at Stewart! Keep up the awesome work!
