Several past principals will be on hand to celebrate the golden birthday. Student council members will share fun facts about the school’s history, and the school choir and Walnut High Band Buddies will provide music.

Immediately following the ceremony, students and parents will be invited to enjoy a hotdog lunch on the playground.
