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.
