CMS Welcomes You

CMS Welcomes You Logo

Welcome all students, parents, community members, and guests to Chilton Middle School.

Our Philosophy and Mission are based upon the development of the whole child as they proceed from Elementary School to High school. Students are at a critical stage of growth and development in their lives, which creates an exciting and always changing environment. Being able to meet each student where they are and give them the individualized support that they need is our primary goal. We are focused on building relationships that develop trust and an understanding of how to be a positive member of an ever changing society.

CMS offers many great opportunities for our students. Academically, we utilize rigorous curriculum that is in coordination with our state standards. Our school uses College Preparatory Mathematics, Book Club/Book Choice and language development in our Literacy Classes, NGSS standards within our Science courses, and is utilizing the newly developed State Social Studies standards. Our Related Arts courses build off of the core academics and gives the students meaningful experiences to develop their individual skill sets. All of this comes with the students ability to showcase their learning in multiple ways, because not all students learn the same way.

In addition to our educational programs, we offer a large assortment of co-curricular activities which help develop and instill confidence in our students. Furthermore, the focus on the Arts is shown through our great productions in the Middle School Musicals.

The Chilton Community is the foundation on which this school is developed. We welcome and encourage engagement with all families and community members. Thank you for making us better each day.

I look forward to communicating with you and learning more on how you can help our school continue to grow. Please feel free to call 920-849-9152 or email kielm@chilton.k12.wi.us in regards to our school. If you would like a personal tour of our facility I would gladly set up a time with you.

Thank you for your continued support.

Matt Kiel, Principal

About the Eastshore Humane Association:

The Eastshore Humane Association is a non-profit, "no-kill" Animal Shelter located on Park Street in Chilton. They provide needed love, food, shelter and medical care for many animals. This year, the shelter has an unforeseen expense, as they need a new roof. The shelter roof was installed in 2001 with Certainteed Organic Asphalt Shingles that carried a 30 year warranty. The shingles are failing at 40% of their expected life resulting in serious risk to the roof substructure. Warranty and a Class Action Settlement with the shingle manufacturer may provide a small portion of the cost to replace the roof. Settlement timing is uncertain, but the roof may not get them through the winter.

Eastshore Humane Association is an IRS 501 (c) (3) nonprofit (EIN #39-1565423) and your donations are tax deductible, should you choose to donate to them directly!! Donations collected during the High School Basketball games will help them to keep a roof over the animal's heads!!
