Nisswa Elementary School kindergartners celebrated "graduating" from kindergarten Thursday, May 30, when they boarded a school bus and joined classmates from other Brainerd School District buildings for Kinderfriend Day at the high school field.

Those students who continue their education with the Brainerd district likely will gather in 2031 for their high school graduation on the same field.
