Project Description:

An aging, overcrowded elementary school prompted the Lake Mills Area School District to conduct extensive community research, resulting in a successful referendum to replace the existing elementary with a new facility on the same site. 

K-4 students and the Lake Mills community will benefit from the new, energy-efficient, highly-sustainable two-story elementary school designed to serve approximately 600 students in a 21st-century learning environment. It provides five classrooms per grade level, with three additional flexible classroom areas, a collaboration/resource area, and plenty of natural light.

The new facility also provides a shared community area, two-station gym with 600 bleacher seats, a cafeteria with serving kitchen, and a secured main entrance.

“When it comes to forming strong and lasting relationships, Miron truly sets the bar. Throughout numerous construction projects with our District, the Miron team has never lost sight of our project drivers and vision, and have genuinely become a part of this great Lake Mills community. We could not imagine undertaking these projects with any other contractor. We can always count on Miron to turn our dreams into realities.”  
- Dean E. Sanders, District Administrator
