Cultural Graduation Celebrations 2021


This year, we will be hosting a joint virtual cultural graduation celebration that will include traditions and practices from our six traditional cultural graduation celebrations. 

This collaborative program will allow us to be consistent with our commitment to promote social distancing and align with the California Department of Public Health recommendations.

The joint cultural graduation celebration will be held:

Friday, May 14th, 2021
