Young Hawks are getting some new digs.

Ground was broken this afternoon on a new Perry Elementary Center in Shoemakersville.

Officials with the Hamburg School District say the building will house 500 students.

The new building will replace the current Perry Elementary School, which has been part of the district since 1931.
