Community says goodbye to Sunset School

If you went to Sunset Elementary School in Sturgeon Bay, Tuesday was your last chance to walk the halls and classrooms.  The Sturgeon Bay School District hosted an open house for the public prior to the eventual demolition of the building for a future apartment complex development.  Elementary School Principal Ann Smejkal says the 65-year-old building on North Eighth Avenue carries many special memories for a lot of students who attended the school.  Kindergarten teacher Tammy Herschleb Kroll remembers her time as a kindergartener at Sunset in the early 1970’s.



Smejkal says many of the desks and equipment that remains in the building will be sent over to Sunrise School and Sawyer School.  The building will be completely vacated by October 1 when the transfer of property is completed.
