Photo: Submitted Saying Goodbye to Kindergarten By Jaclyn Czymbor PARK RIVER, N.D. -- l re- member the first day of Kinder- garten back in August. Not only the students enter the room with some apprehension, but 1 do as well. The year got off to a won- derful start, with a wonderful class. This Kindergarten year has been full of learning new things. Throughout the year we have learned about animas and their habitats, how to add and subtract, engineered rafts for the ginger- bread man, and most importantly how to read! We have also had many visitors come into our room to teach us about plants, teach us about seatbelt safety, teach us how to make apple chips, and read to us. As the year comes to an end, we are eagerly getting ready for first grade, but not before we share some of our favorite parts fKindergarten" "I like to play on the com- puter." -Kaisin "I like to have recess. I like to play with my friends." -Keira "I like to do fun things with iPads, and learn new things, and make new friends." -Lexi "I like science. I made a polar bear. I learned that they eat seals and fish." -Torfinn "I liked learning with the IPad." -Blake "I like that my teacher is nice and she teaches me a lot." -Hai- Icy B.

This year the kiddos aren't the only ones saying goodbye to Kindergarten, I will be saying goodbye as well. Leaving after eleven years of teaching in this classroom isn't easy. My hus- band and I will be moving to Ply- mouth, MN as he begins Seminary and I will continue my teaching career at Heritage Chris- tian Academy as a first grade teacher. My heart often gets heavy as I think about leaving such a welcoming and supportive school and town. It has been a pleasure being a part of the Park River Area School and commu- nity over the past twelve years. Thank you to all who have in- vested in my life here, and know that you will all be missed. Editor's Note: Czvmbor is a Kindergarten teacher at Park River Area Elementary.
