Whooping Cough


Whooping Cough


Attention Parents:

Several elementary students and a Chilton Middle School student have been diagnosed with a laboratory confirmed case of pertussis (whooping cough). Pertussis is a contagious bacterial disease that affects the respiratory tract. It is spread by contact with respiratory droplets from an infected person. Pertussis usually begins with cold-like symptoms and a cough and progresses to spells of explosive coughing that can interrupt breathing and sleeping. The "coughing fits" may be followed by vomiting, exhaustion, and a "whooping" sound. Cough medicines usually do not help the cough. The cough may last for several weeks or longer.

It may be difficult to tell the difference between the common cold and other illnesses. If your child develops symptoms of pertussis, as described above, please contact your health care provider for more information and to request medical evaluation, if needed.

Even though a child may have been vaccinated for pertussis, he or she can still become infected with pertussis. Infected persons who have been vaccinated for pertussis will usually have a milder case of the disease. Pertussis infection can be very serious for infants and persons with immune system problems.

Please make sure that your children are current with their vaccinations. If vaccines are needed, contact your health care provider or Calumet County Public Health at 920-849-1432 or at 920-989-2700, ext. 432 to schedule an appointment.

Sincerely, Calumet County Public Health

Local Farmers Can Assist With America's Farmers Grow Rural Education Grant


Local Farmers Can Assist With America's Farmers Grow Rural Education Grant


The Chilton Public School District is applying for the America's Farmers Grow Rural Education Grant.   The grant proposal includes construction of an outdoor classroom at the school forest, clearing a gathering area within the forest, and two bridges to connect trails over the stream.  Grant proposals receive additional points for every nomination received.

The following information comes from http://www.americasfarmers.com/growruraleducation/faqs.aspx

What is the America's Farmers Grow Rural Education Program?
America's Farmers Grow Rural Education is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund to help farmers positively impact their communities by supporting local school districts. Specifically, the program gives farmers the opportunity to nominate a public school district in their community to compete for a merit-based grant of either $10,000 or $25,000. The program is available in 1,245 counties in 39 states.

How does a farmer nominate a public school district?
The nomination process is simple. Eligible farmers can fill out a short nomination form at GrowRuralEducation.com or by calling 1-877-267-3332. A printed copy of the entry form and rules are available on this website or by calling the number. Completed entries can be mailed to America's Farmers Grow Rural Education, 914 Spruce Street, St. Louis, MO 63102. The nomination period runs Jan. 6, 2012, through April 15, 2012.

Who can nominate a school district?
No purchase is necessary to nominate a school district, and the farmer does not have to be a Monsanto Company customer. Farmers must be 21 years or older and be actively engaged in farming with a minimum of 250 acres of corn, soybeans and/or cotton; and/or 40 acres of open field vegetables, or at least 10 acres of tomatoes, peppers and/or cucumbers grown in protected culture.


Chilton Board of Education Co-Curricular Committee


Chilton Board of Education Co-Curricular Committee


As a School Board, each member participates in various committees. These committees allow facilitation of ideas and concerns from the students, staff, and administration to the School Board. One of these committees is the Co-Curricular Committee. Randy Lisowe and Terry Criter are the board representatives on this committee. The Chilton School District currently offers three categories of activities to enhance students' experiences and add value to their learning.

Category 1 - Athletic/Athletic Related-Activities: Includes all sports plus Dance and Cheerleading.

Category 2 - Non-Athletic Performing Activities: Forensics, Solo and Ensemble, Drama, FFA, Academic Competitions, Future Business Leaders of America, and Science Olympiad.

Category 3 - Honors of the School: Examples are Student Council, Class Officer, and Graduation Speaker.

During a recent Co-Curricular Committee meeting, agenda items included reviewing a new consideration on the physical education credit requirement, the start-up of a potential coop sport with a neighboring school district, and the participation fee structure. It is through these meetings that change and improvements take place for the betterment of the School District of Chilton.
