"Always an Aviator" means leaving a lasting legacy on Sycamore Community Schools. It is time to cement your place in Aviator history. Help us soar by financially supporting the capital campaign to create the elite facilities that this district and community deserve.
A Critical Need
The district has done extensive assessments of our facilities including renovations and potential replacement of our aging athletic venues. Currently, our facilities are leaving our student-athletes at a disadvantage compared to other league schools. Our leadership does not find that acceptable and is taking action.
The Board of Education committed and our community approved raising the bar for our district facilities. The approved bond issue includes nearly $5 million toward athletic facilities such as gymnasiums, locker rooms, and natatorium. The Board has also committed $2.5 million from the bond issue towards the renovation or replacement of Sycamore Stadium. In February 2021, the district met its promise to raise $2.6 million in private funding before publicly launching the Always An Aviator capital campaign.
Now Is The Time
While the funding included in the bond issue will address some of the aging needs throughout the district, it does not satisfy the goal of our capital campaign: to go beyond providing standard facilities to our student-athletes and community and reach elite facilities that will match the excellence of our phenomenal district.
The time is right to act! Sycamore Community Schools is going through major facility changes thanks to the support of our bond issue. The district has a unique opportunity to make changes that will leave a legacy of greatness and impact future generations. The district will involve district stakeholders to ensure success.
