PINE ISLAND, Minn. (AP) - Pine Island has broken ground on a $33 million elementary school that voters approved earlier this year.

KTTC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1wPqQx9 ) officials on Thursday marked the start of the project in the southeastern Minnesota town. The pre-kindergarten through fourth grade building was approved in a referendum in May.

Superintendent Tamara Berg-Beniak says the 103,000-square-foot school is expected to open for classes by next fall.

Tower Investments donated the land for the school. It will include a gym, track and soccer field.
