Today two more of the eleven Tucson Unified School District schools being closed will celebrate their memories over the years.

Carson Middle School students, staff and families are saying goodbye by celebrating the school's history. 

Yesterday, Howenstine High Magnet and Wakefield Middle school said their goodbyes with celebrations, and Carson Middle School will take their turn today. 

Carson's Principal John Howe has been with the middle school for seven years, he says tonight is a chance for current and past students to take a piece of the school's history with them.

The school will have a no cost memorabilia auction, auctioning off items like trophies and yearbooks. 

Principal Howe also said while many students are sad to leave, they are trying to stay positive, saying the students are visiting their new schools to get accustomed to the change and all his teachers have been placed in other schools.

Carson Middle School is ready to finish strong.  The goodbye celebration at Carson Middle School begins at 5 p.m. tonight.  Also scheduling a goodbye celebration is Schumaker Elementary School.
