Groundbreaking for new Berlin Middle School

BERLIN - The Berlin Area School District broke ground on a new middle school Tuesday.

The new building will be attached to the high school. It will have space for about 375 students in grades 6-8.

Voters approved the school as part of an $18.7 million referendum in October.

District officials say it feels great to see the building come to life.

"What's really exciting is how the community's come together, not only to look at what our needs are for our student body, but also to follow that up and come up with creative ideas for us to make this successful,” said District Administrator Bob Eidahl.

The school is expected to be completed by August 2015.
