There is a brand new group of shining faces here at Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy (HBHA), and the school couldn’t be happier. The Kindergarteners have completed their first semester and everyone is wondering the same thing: Who are these cute little kids?

HBHA is known for having pretty small classes, but, the Kindergarten class is usually one of the largest in the school, often with as many as 30 students. This year’s Kindergarten class is different with only 16 students, making it the smallest Kindergarten class since before 2012. This is only one factor that makes this class unique. Each of the kids’ spunky personalities makes them a blast to be around.

The Kindergarteners were asked a series of questions that will let us get to know them a little better.
