The Midlothian Independent School District is hosting a groundbreaking ceremony for Elementary School No. 6 at the school site at 2800 Suddith Lane.

The ceremony will get underway at 6 p.m. in an effort to take advantage of cooler afternoon temperatures and to allow working parents a chance to take part in the event.

The groundbreaking will be attended by MISD trustees, administrators and local dignitaries. The community and especially families from the neighborhood are urged to attend.

There will be a brief program and then the ceremonial shovels of dirt will be turned.

Elementary School No. 6 is funded by the May 2006 bond referendum and will open during the 2008-09 school year. Elementary schools typically take 18 months to build.

The Suddith Lane school has yet to be named and MISD officials are urging the community to contact the Elementary School No. 6 Facility naming Committee with their nomination by Aug. 1.

The 80-acre school site is being touted as a possible site for MISD’s third middle school.
