Seniors gathered together at the Aquacades premiere night in their college sweaters.

As the year comes to an end, NDB faculty and staff have been going to great lengths to organize fun and safe end-of-year events. The whole school has felt the impact of the pandemic this year, but the loss of community events has definitely been the hardest for some. Thankfully, students and seniors especially, are not going out without a bang.

To start off the list of activities, seniors were hosted in the Father Downey Garden for a COVID-19 special, Disneycades. The grass was filled with smiling seniors scattered in college sweatshirts and warm clothes. This event reminded us seniors just how much we were going to miss our class spirit once we graduate in June.

Senior Mother Daughter Tea will be held on May 23, and is an annual in-person event for seniors and their mothers to celebrate all their hard work. On May 28, Graduation boxes will be available for pickup, including Graduation announcements, cap and gowns, gloves, honor cords, leadership leis, senior stickers, awards, and alumni gifts.

On Friday, June 4, Class Day will be hosted virtually for all students online, with the exception of seniors and the new ASB officers in person. This live event will mark the day when all students move up to their next grade together. Following Class Day, Graduation Rehearsal and the Prayer Service and Blessing will be held after school for graduates only. The Prayer Service will be livestreamed so that families can participate.

Graduation and Prom night will be held on Saturday, June 5, for all seniors and their respective guests. Seniors will be given three tickets for guests wanting to attend the Graduation service, and anyone wishing to attend from the comfort of their home can join in the livestream. Prom will be hosted outdoors with food trucks and photo areas and will be a night seniors will not want to miss.
