She may not be able to show it at Chi’s Got Talent, due to the heat of summer, but Lauren Friduss is a pretty good ice skater and was selected to perform in Northbrook on Ice. Congrats Lauren!

Bump, set, spike. Those are three words we hear a lot as the SITs practice for their game, and the SITs of 2022 may have a secret weapon in training. Sarina Levy and her volleyball team finished the season in 2nd place, which is pretty impressive. Keep up the hard work Sarina.
