DOWNERS GROVE – Kingsley Elementary School opened its doors Sept. 3, 1963, and the school hosted a dedication ceremony Sunday, Nov. 24, 1963.

In a coincidence "too good for the planning committee to pass up," Nov. 24 happens to be on a Sunday, the district said in a press release. "That makes it the perfect day to host a 50th anniversary re-dedication."

Kingsley School is seeking former students, parents and staff to attend the event, which will run from 3 to 5 p.m., and to send pictures from their time at the school.

To RSVP for the event or to send a photo, contact Principal Mark Stange, mstange@dg58.org, or secretary Diane Glowicki, dglowicki@dg58.org.

Alumni and retirees can also call 630-719-5850 to RSVP, and photographs also can be mailed to the school, 6509 Powell St.
