TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It is the end of an era for one school in the Sunnyside Unified School District. The community will be celebrating a school which has been around for more than three decades. 

Chaparral Middle School is closing after 34 years, due to district budget cuts. But today, students are welcoming the community to help honor the history of the middle school.

SUSD officials are asking anyone who went to Chaparral Middle School, or taught there at one time, to come out and help celebrate. 

Current students are working on projects that showcase the school's history since it first opened in 1980.  Open house festivities are happening Thursday night from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

What will happen to the buildings after the school closes?  It will be getting a new life, being redesigned as a fine arts elementary school, which will open in 2015.
