The Hermiston School District will open Armand Larive Middle School for community members to tour and reminisce in the current building on June 7.
Similar to prior celebrations at West Park Elementary and Sunset Elementary, the goodbye event will open the current facility, 321 N.E. Third St., to the public, beginning at 4 p.m.
The official groundbreaking for the new Armand was held Jan. 5, 2010. The new school will be complete and open to students for the start of the 2011-2012 school year. A formal ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place this summer to open the new campus.
The public is welcome to attend the ceremony and tour the facility. Armand Larive Middle School serves about 480 students and was originally built in 1936. The strong academic culture of ALMS is built around its mission of High Levels of Learning for All Kids.
