Dear New Glarus Supporter

The District will be relocating the football/soccer field across from the high school and has been working on creating a long-term master plan for that area. As part of that planning, the District has engaged staff and community members to create a vision for a long-term plan that includes a versatile outdoor sports and community complex. This multi-purpose field aims to provide a safe, comfortable, and modern venue for year-round classroom activities, sports, and regional events, benefiting students, athletes, fans, and the entire Knight’s community.

To turn this vision into a reality, the New Glarus Glarner Community Field Committee has been formed. Recognizing the limited budget of the school district, the committee, consisting of community members, coaches, and organizational leaders, is leading a fundraising campaign to enhance the complex and achieve the project goals.

To support New Glarus students and the community, opportunities to donate to the new activities complex are being offered to businesses, alumni, current students, families, and community members. If you’re interested in getting involved and being recognized, you can find more information on our web page or mail the donation form with your tax-deductible contribution to the New Glarus School District

Thank you for your consideration

Knight Vision

Modern Facilities

With the addition of turf, our complex provides a safe and reliable playing surface for all our athletes. It ensures they can perform at their best, in varied weather conditions, while reducing the risk of injuries. It will allow increased use of a space that is relied on daily without needing to rest. It will be able to be used for both game and practice, and have extended timing with lights for early Spring and late fall nights.

The addition of a new concession/restroom building will provide amenities to our community members and our visitors. The placement allows volunteers to be able to support sales of concession while still being able to watch their students at play. Restrooms will be provided so that access is easy for student athletes and community members alike.

Welcoming Community Plaza

Our complex is not just a sports arena; it’s a gathering place for the entire community. The community plaza offers space for events, socializing, and creating lasting memories, fostering a sense of belonging for families in our district and greater community. This will serve as a place of pride and hosted events.

Retaining & Attracting Families

Nothing brings families together like the excitement of high school sports. With our modern complex, we believe we’ll draw in new families and retain existing, enhancing the sense of community and boosting enrollment numbers. An overwhelming percentage of Wisconsin complexes are moving to turf surfaces, and most new complexes are installing straight-to turf facilities. State tournaments are all hosted on Turf fields in both soccer and football.

Staying Competitive

In today’s competitive educational landscape, having modern facilities is crucial. Our new complex keeps us on par with neighboring districts, ensuring we can attract and retain talent.

Versatile Usage

The complex’s design allows for multiple uses beyond sports events. From hosting concerts and cultural celebrations to outdoor classes and community fitness programs, this facility will be a hub of activity, benefiting our students and the wider community alike.
