During today's open house, visitors can roam the hallways and share memories while viewing the colorful murals. Yearbooks from each of the school's 39 years also will be on display. The last day of school for students was Tuesday; teachers' last day is Thursday. The school is at 18000 Shady Hills Road, Spring Hill.
