Athletic Director’s Message

Jefferson Middle School is fortunate to offer multiple interscholastic athletic opportunities for our students.  All of the JMS athletic teams have a tradition of athletic excellence and strive to be leaders, both on and off the court, in all contests.  At JMS, we offer football, cheerleading, cross country, and girls volleyball in the fall.  We offer cheerleading, boys basketball, and girls basketball in the winter.  And we offer track & field in the spring.  All of our athletic programs are led by outstanding coaches who promote a student-first philosophy.  In addition to promoting academic success, all JMS athletic teams place a focus on helping our student-athletes prepare for life beyond Jefferson Middle School.  Focus is placed on developing life skills such as:  discipline, responsibility, teamwork, character, hard work, respect, and self-confidence.

I am honored to be the Athletic Director at Jefferson Middle School, where I have been a physical education teacher and coach for 15 years.  At Jefferson Middle School, I have had the opportunity to coach girls basketball, girls volleyball, cheerleading, and track & field.  My goal for Jefferson Athletics is for all of our athletic teams to display outstanding sportsmanship while competing and excelling athletically.

Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions about Jefferson Athletics at ksbolling@ortn.edu.

Go Eagles!
