Catholic officials dedicated a brand new middle school in the Cedar Valley Catholic School system in Waterloo Sunday.
The Archdiocese of Dubuque and school officials dedicated Blessed Maria Assunta Pallotta School which will serve 6-8 grade students.
The new building brings those grade levels all under one roof, from several catholic elementary schools in the Cedar Valley and is located next door to Columbus High School in Waterloo.
"What this does is this building is state-of-the-art. It has really all the bells and whistles new buildings do. It's ready for one to one technology, STEM technology, and really the vision of what we see down the road here," said Jeff Frost, CVCS Director of Education.
The new $7.5 million school is expected to help meet growing enrollment needs.
