NEW BERLIN – The custodians and teachers aides at UV Elementary School have teamed up this holiday season to help transform one of their school's hallways into a recreation of the popular children's book and movie “The Polar Express.”
Elementary School principal, Chris Harper said, “The custodians and teachers aides have taken ‘The Polar Express’ and made it 'our' story.”
When visitors first walk in the Elementary School's main entrance, they are greeted with an audio recording of “The Polar Express” story. Above their heads they will see a banner welcoming them into “The Polar Express” hallway. As visitors make their way down the corridor, they are surrounded by visual props. Above their heads there is a multitude of paper snowflakes that dance and sway with the passing of children. Either side of the hallway is adorned with colorful train cars that each represent a different classroom or group of school employees. Each of these train cars is covered with the smiling faces of every student and staff member in the school.
