Marshalltown High School will host a brief groundbreaking ceremony for the Roundhouse Phase II project at noon on Thursday, October 12.
The event, which is open to the public, will feature brief remarks by district and project leaders.
The project is underway to build a wrestling room and auxiliary gym at MHS, led by the general contractor Ball Team of Urbandale. Nearly $3 million was raised by the Renovate the Roundhouse group for the project including a $1 million grant from the Martha-Ellen Tye Foundation.
The project is expected to be completed in late 2018.
