Paia Elementary School on Maui is getting a new cafeteria to replace the one destroyed by fire in 2005.

Officials will hold a groundbreaking and blessing ceremony Monday at the school.

For the past six years, students have been eating lunch in shifts in an old building.

“The building of the new cafeteria comes at an opportune time as our school is growing in population,” Principal Susan Alivado said in a news release. “Seven years ago, we served about 200 students. Now we have 310 students and we’re anticipating an additional 20 students a year.”

The cafeteria is expected to be completed in November 2012.

Established in 1908, Paia Elementary School is on Maui’s north shore and serves students from grades K-5.
