The Dallas Center-Grimes Community School District officially broke ground on the 7/8 building during a ceremony on Tuesday, June 4.

The new building, to be located south of the high school, about a mile down on County Line Road, is set to open in August of 2021.

The district is working with Rochon and FRK architects. The district is also working with the City of Grimes on the development of County Line Road from gravel to a paved road.
