Parents, staff and other community members are invited to bid farewell to the old Geiger Elementary School building from 2 to 5 p.m Sunday at the school, 621 S. Jackson Ave.

This event is an opportunity for Geiger alumni and community members to tour the 1949 school building, share memories and say goodbye. The public can also see a display of plans for a new school design.

The Tacoma School Board voted to continue with construction plans for Geiger, and temporarily move students to the former Hunt Middle School site, at 6501 S. 10th St., for the 2011-2012 school year.

Staff members will be available in the school office Aug. 1–3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for parents who wish to enroll their children at the temporary Geiger Montessori School at 6501 S. 10th St.
