Visitors to the open house were greeted at the curb by volunteers representing the transportation department where they could pick up information, coloring sheets, pencils and even a cardboard bus.

Two real-life buses were also on hand for visitors to view and explore, including an up-close look at the engine.

Once inside, the hallways and classrooms at APW Elementary School were filled with students eager to show their family members where they come to learn each day.
