CMS Welcomes You

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 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

First published on 03 August 2011 Posted in CMS News & Press Releases

Welcome back to a new and exciting year at Chilton Middle School.  As the excitement builds towards the beginning of the year, I am personally honored to be in the position I am here as your principal.  I truly enjoy working in Chilton and the joys and challenges that come from it honestly makes every day never the same.


We do have the most challenging and crucial job in the world!  It’s a job in which we cannot fail.  I ask that all of you think back to the energy you had during your first year and try and repeat that enthusiasm.  Our mission is very important and our future really does depend upon the education and character of our youth.


Please note if your child is in grades 7-12 and is participating in a sport, there is a MANDATORY eligibility meeting on August 8th will begin at 5:00p.m. at the Engler Center located at the High School and will be repeated every 30 minutes until 7:30pm.  Beginning at 4:00 that day we will take school fees and co-curricular fees for the high school students, you can also turn in any updated paperwork and pick up physical forms if needed.  See the attached fee form for information on costs.

If you don’t have a student in High School the registration days for you will be August 16 or 17th and will take place in the Elementary/Middle school cafeteria from 10:00-6:00.  The August 16 or 17th meeting times will only be for paying fees and dropping off paper work, students will not be able to go to class rooms, that will take place at the PTA open house on August 30th from 4:00pm – 6:00pm

 Our schedules have changed for the 2011-12 school year!  I have attached our new schedules and will explain them further at the PTA Open House on August 30th.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have regarding these changes.

I have also attached several other documents that I feel will be helpful for you as we prepare for our year!


I am looking forward to a productive, positive year working alongside you to make a difference in the lives of our children.
