Addition to Tradition Phase 3
Posted on 10/17/2016

Addition to Tradition

The Addition to Tradition project began in 2006 as a means of improving the outdoor educational and co-curricular facilities at Appleton West High School. Through a multi-faceted fundraising effort by the Appleton West community that raised $1.7 million, and through district contributions of over $2.6 million, phase 1 was completed in 2009 and phase 2 was completed in 2013. Phase 3, the final phase of the project, involves the addition of two tennis courts, installation of an artificial turf multi-purpose outdoor education and athletic field, press box, outdoor concession stand and restrooms, and additional bleacher seating.

The tennis courts and artificial turf are integral pieces of the outdoor education facilities of Appleton West. They will provide much needed space for phy ed classes and marching band practices, thus impacting all students. It is estimated that the availability of the outdoor space will see a 60% increase throughout the year. In addition, the utilization for phy ed classes will grow by approximately 75%.

Thanks to a combination of private donations and district funding, a significant portion of funds for major parts of phase 3 of Addition to Tradition have been secured. In an effort to support this progress, the Appleton West Terror Backers will be raising funds to contribute to this endeavor.

The kick-off fundraiser, Turf’s Up!, offers an opportunity for sponsorship of a square yard of artificial turf. For a tax-deductible donation of $25 per square yard, individuals will receive a commemorative certificate of sponsorship (mailed or emailed) and the pride in knowing that they support the educational and co-curricular experience at Appleton West.  In keeping with Addition to Tradition donation levels, any donation of $250 or greater will be recognized on a wall of honor. Funds raised will support the Addition to Tradition Phase 3 projects proposed for installation within the next year: artificial turf, press box, and two additional tennis courts. Any excess funds will be contributed to the remaining Addition to Tradition Phase 3 projects.
