NOCE Celebrates Graduates with Alternative Plans

May 14, 2020 2:44 AM

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing order, NOCE will not be able to have an in-person Commencement Ceremony in June. To celebrate our students, NOCE will send a celebration kit to High School Diploma and Career Technical Education Program graduates and candidates (those in progress to graduate). The box will include various items for students to celebrate at home. The kit is intended to celebrate NOCE completers and encourage them to post celebratory photos on the NOCE social media pages using the hashtag #NOCEGrad2020. Graduates will also be invited to participate in the next commencement ceremony, tentatively scheduled for end of May 2021, pending large events are allowed per the State of California social distancing guidelines.

Class of 2020 graduates and candidates are invited to signup to receive a special, one-time NOCE  2020 Graduation Celebration Box, which includes a 2020 tassel and other items to celebrate the occasion. Boxes are available while supplies last and by filling out the GRADUATE CELEBRATION BOX REQUEST FORM that was sent via e-mail to eligible graduates and candidates (those who are in progress to complete by the end of the 2020 Spring Term). This form will need to be filled out by Tuesday, June 9, 2020. Graduation Celebration Boxes will be mailed to the address provided in the request form by the end of June/beginning of July. For students that cannot provide a current address and indicated that they would like to pick up their NOCE Graduate Celebration Box, please provide a phone number on the Graduate Celebration Box Request Form; an NOCE staff member will then call you to make an arrangement for pick up. The Graduate Celebration Box will not be available for pick-up until early July.
