The school year is coming to a close but construction work at Greenland, Park Lawn and Ixonia Elementary Schools is gearing up. Greenland and Park Lawn projects will include replacement of the heating, ventilation, and mechanical systems along with adding cooling systems. This work will begin immediately after school ends in June and will be complete by mid-August, prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year.
Likewise, construction work at Ixonia Elementary will begin immediately after school ends in June and will be completed in August 2018 for the start of the 2018-19 school year.

Ixonia Elementary School students, staff and families joined with the Ixonia community to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Ixonia Elementary School addition. The OHS Pep Band started off the celebration along with the school mascot, Fiona the Falcon. Ixonia Principal Stacy Yearling greeted students and guests and thanked the community for their continuous support of Ixonia Elementary. OASD Superintendent of Schools Roger J. Rindo, echoed appreciation for the community's support of Ixonia Elementary and OASD. He also thanked all of the community, School Board, town and state officials who helped make the project possible.
Students from each grade level shared their hopes and dreams for Ixonia Elementary now and into the future as they contributed items to a time capsule that will be opened by Ixonia students 25 years from now. Students and staff then concluded the ceremony by singing a new rendition of the Ixonia Elementary School song, written especially for the ground breaking ceremony.

January 31, 2017: Ixonia Elementary Addition & Renovation Schematic Design
- We continue to be on schedule with the heating, ventilation, cooling, and mechanical system updates to Greenland and Park Lawn. Design development is underway as engineers are planning for the installation of unit ventilators in classrooms and a number of approaches to both heat and cool the common areas in those buildings. The project is on budget and will be bid in early April. Work on the project will begin immediately after school is finished in June with project completion planned for the start of the 2017-18 school year in September.
- The School Board has taken action to secure a contract to acquire 20.2 acres of land for the new Meadow View Elementary, approximately a mile south of the current school site off of Brown Street/Hwy P. Our collaborative efforts with the City of Oconomowoc and St. Matthews church continue with regard to planning and development of our new school site, a new St. Matthews School, and a planned regional city park. Schematic design work on the new school begins next week!
- Last night the School Board approved the schematic design for the new addition and renovation of Ixonia Elementary School. Several renderings of the new exterior as well as floor plans for the addition and renovation are attached here for you. The project is on budget and will be bid in mid-April. Work on the project will begin immediately after school is finished in June, and will be completed in August, 2018.
