LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

There was a big celebration Thursday morning at Our Lady Queen of Heaven School in Lake Charles.

The school broke ground on a new addition to the school.

It's a one-story, 26,000-square-foot middle school building to house fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders.

 Monsignor James M. Gaddy said it was an exciting day for students and staff.

"We're having the groundbreaking for our new school building; the construction will begin in June and hopefully, we will be in by September of 2014. It'll be our new middle school building for junior high. We're going to be building a 14-classroom, brand new building here, and I think it's going to benefit all of Lake Charles," he said.

The new middle school building is the first phase of a three-part facility improvement at the school, funded by donations to the cornerstone capital campaign.
