The Horicon community located in South Eastern Wisconsin voted to approve a $26.52 million referendum to construct a new elementary school attached to the junior/senior high school. The referendum was approved by more than 61 percent of the vote, giving the district great support to move forward on the project.
The project officially kicked off in December 2019 and was completed in Fall 2020. The ultimate goal from the architect and school staff was to create a design concept that is unique to the school by using natural patterns, shapes and colors that can be found in surrounding areas. Each of the four grade levels has an ecosystem concept as the theme. Drumlin, woodlands, lakes and rivers and wetlands are themes used to harness the outdoor environment in the school setting to create a fun learning environment. Complex patterns in the flooring brought on a challenging install in the execution of this renovation and new construction project.
