Benny Rubinfeld and Maya Warmflash had fun letting their curiosity run free on the first day of preschool at the Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy in Stamford. Benny let the learning begin by examining a bug up close and personal; and Maya, looking whimsical in her pink cat mask, followed suit by holding a shell to her ear and listening to the sound of the ocean.
Kids weren’t the only ones having fun at Bi-Cultural. During professional development week, leading up to opening day, teachers were surprised with a delicious ‘thank you’ for all their hard work and commitment when an ice cream truck pulled up to the school. Here, preschool teachers Morah Nicole (left) and Morah Paige enjoy their treats.
