Luke F.

Luke F.'s basketball team won the league series championship game for his age group over the weekend.  They proved to be unbeatable with a season 6-0 record and then also won the championship.  It was an exciting game that came down to the wire.  A rare fete in sports to have an undefeated season!

Alexander G.

I’ve always been the proud mother of Alexander G. (Year 3) — a boy who wakes up with a smile, a hug, and so many stories. My cheeks are always sore from constant laughter, and I feel especially proud when I see his left dimple he inherited from me curl up in a wry grin. Although I have never raised a boy (or been around brothers - we were four sisters in our family), I strive to teach Alex the values I know are important in a well-mannered, modest man. Recently, I caught a glimpse of Alex kneeling on the damp cement to help a classmate zip her winter coat. He struggled a bit with the zipper, but, as he stood slowly to close her coat, he smiled with pride I’ve not seen before during any game or sport. This moment was more far more important than any trophy, grade, score, or goal. I knew then he had listened, and that was more than enough.

Claire & Emilia M.

Claire ( Year 5) and Emilia M. ( Year 2) organized goody bags making in our neighborhood. They donated them to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland, an independent not-for-profit organization whose mission is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion, and a sense of community.

There were 14 children that participated and made total of 46 goody bags -- a little something to make a an ill child smile who arrives into the new city for her/his treatment.

Eli, Ben & Noah M.

The Mitzenmacher brothers - Eli (Year 5), Ben (Year 3), and Noah (Reception) - recently participated in their temple's annual "Mitzvah Weekend" (mitzvah = Hebrew word meaning "good deed"). They volunteered their time decorating and packing 500 lunch bags to be delivered to area shelters, and also made fleece quilts for Cornerstone Community Outreach, an organization that helps low-income residents in the Uptown area. They had a lot of fun and felt great about helping others!
