    Dr. Greg Caine, Sr. - Principal

    It is my honor and pleasure to serve as Principal of Jefferson Middle School. I take great pride in working with outstanding educators every day to make a difference in the lives of our students. I grew up in the small town of Odessa, Missouri. It is there that I learned the value of hard work, compassion for others, my faith, and the importance of family. Over my 24 years in education, I have served as a teacher, coach, athletic director, and school administrator. Through these many wonderful experiences, I have developed a philosophy of education based on positive student relationships and high expectations. At JMS we strive to meet both of those goals collectively for the benefit of our students.
    As a father, I know the value of a quality learning experience for all students. My wife Tabatha and I are blessed with four wonderful living children. My daughters Kelsey, Lauren, Jenna and my son JR. My daughter Kodi passed away last year. As a child with cerebral palsy, Kodi had many challenges in life. She faced them all with a smile on her face and a sweetness that I dearly miss. It is a priority to me that we meet the needs of all of our students. I appreciate the many challenges and opportunities that come from being a parent. I hope to connect with all parents throughout the year in helping to best assist you and your child in having great success. 

    We love being a part of the JMS family!
