In this file photo Garces High School graduated 117 students in 2019 at Rabobank Convention Center. Members of the graduating class and faculty laugh during Valedictorian Ambroise Clarke-Curutchague's speech.

Garces Memorial High School is planning a cruise through campus for students and parents May 12, a night when students were originally scheduled to walk across the stage and turn their tassels during graduation.

Students are encouraged to decorate their cars, put on their caps and celebrate with peers in a car parade starting at 7 p.m. Throughout the parade route, banners of each senior will be displayed along with photos commemorating the Class of 2020’s four years at Garces. Students that received senior awards will also be honored.

At the end of the route, graduates are invited to briefly step out of their cars, one at a time, for a photo in front of the school with their graduation caps, at a safe, socially-distanced six feet.

The school still plans to hold its traditional graduation ceremony later this summer when it is safe to do so.
