Walter Douglas Elementary School will celebrate its 50th birthday Nov. 8 with a carnival for students, families, teachers and staff — both current and former. 

The carnival, which is open to the public, is on campus, 3302 N. Flowing Wells Road, from 6 to 8 p.m. There will be food and games. Admission is free.

As part of the "50 Years of Inspiring Students to Reach for the Stars" celebration, the school will hold an assembly — by invitation only — to celebrate and recognize past students, teachers and administrators. They will also take a school-wide photo on the playground in the shape of a 50.
