Drummers from the Woodrow Band, a “Glee”-worthy performance of the National Anthem and beribboned shovels were highlights of a ceremonial groundbreaking at Woodrow Wilson High School yesterday morning.

Students, alumni, faculty and community members were there to celebrate the official beginning of construction on a three-story addition to the school, which was built in 1928 and is a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark. The $14 million addition will include science and performing arts classrooms. The money comes from a 2006 DISD bond package.

Advocate photo editor Turk was at the ceremony, and he brought us back this video.
