What better way to celebrate than gearing up for STEAMfest this weekend? Our annual celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math takes place this Saturday, starting at 10:30 am with our special guest speaker and continuing at 11 am with a wide range of hands-on STEAM experiments, projects, and crafts designed to engage and inspire students of all ages. Plus we're excited to hear from Lowell alums who are making major changes in environmental science. We can't wait to see you there, alums!

It's that time of year: BASKETBALL PLAYOFFS! Can you believe that our 8th graders are getting ready for their final Lowell games? Come out to support our soon-to-be-graduates, starting with our "senior night" celebration and Boys A Game today at 4:30 pm. And be sure to cheer on both teams in the quarter finals, hosted at home in the Lowell gym, at 3:30 and 4:30 pm this Thursday, February 8. Let's show our Lowell spirit!

Alums, do you remember your own playoff runs (we're looking at you, Class of 2023 🏆) We're loving these moments from last season!

The Explorers class enjoyed a very special alum pop-in today when Abby (’15) came by to share some info about beloved Pre-Primary pet Sebastian. Our young students have been making observations of Sebastian the turtle as part of their STEAM work, sparking quite a few questions like "How old is Sebastian?" and "Where did he come from?" It turns out Abby was an expert because she gave Sebastian his very first home about 15 years ago, before he came to Lowell!

Abby started her visit by sharing a photo of herself as a Pre-Primary student at Lowell. Next she answered the class's many questions about Sebastian. Using student's observations that he has long claws, a long tail, and a triangle-shaped head (they pretended they had pointed heads too), together they deduced that Sebastian is a male. To end the visit, Explorers proudly showed off Sebastian and his newly-improved tank. Abby was thrilled to see her former pet thriving and surrounded by friends!


Find a school that's THIS EXCITED to see you during alumni pop-ins. 💚

Lowell alums, do you have a day off on January 26 or 29? You're invited to pop in to Parkside between 12:15 and 1 pm to reconnect with old Lowell teachers and friends. We'd love to see you! DM us to RSVP.

We were thrilled to welcome alumni and their families at a special event last Friday. There were endless hugs and smiles as familiar friends and faculty reconnected over refreshments, catching up on their declared majors, college plans, or favorite high school courses.

Memories came flooding back as alumni enjoyed tours of the Primary School and perused old yearbooks. We delighted in hearing "I remember..." and "This used to be..." as they moved around the building. One alum instinctively removed his shoes upon entering the dance studio—old habits stick with us!

Many recent graduates also explored the STEAM Lab, racing Ozobots and preserving their voices in the brand new Leopard Studio for use in a future podcast.

Though a wonderful evening of nostalgia, we're most excited to know that our former Leopards are thriving in their new adventures! Alums, let us know what you're up to and be sure to send us your contact info for invites to more events like this!


Remember to join us for an Alumni Family Party this Friday, January 5 at 5:30 pm in the Main Building. Enjoy a chance to mingle with other alumni families, plus former and current faculty and staff members, over refreshments and swag. We'll be offering optional tours for those who aren't familiar with the buildings or want to see how they have changed. What's more, we'll visit the STEAM Workshop, home of the brand new Leopard Studios—record your own Lowell memories for our archives or a future podcast!

We wish our alums and their families the joy and wonder of the winter season. (Does anyone remember this joyful and snowy day in 2016?)

Our offices will be closed until January 2, but we hope to see you in the new year when we kick off 2024 with an Alumni Family Party on Friday, January 5 from 5:30–7 pm.


Congrats to Class of 2020 alum Sam Greenspan on committing to play football at Wake Forest University in the fall! Here he is during a recent game with his high school team at Maret—wow!

Alums, whether you've made your plans for next year or are still finishing up applications, we're excited to share your news. Send us a message to be included in a future post or alum newsletter.


Today, Lowell middle schoolers voted for class representatives, plus a secretary, treasurer, and co-presidents to represent the entire student body. They also got a special surprise when last year's co-president and Class of 2023 alum stopped by to help work the polls! (No motorcades were required, fortunately 😉) What a creative way to give back to Lowell!


Sing it out—we want to hear your news!

Lowell loves to hear about your academic successes, extracurricular accomplishments, marriages, family additions, and professional news. Please DM us or email Allison Evans so we can share in upcoming alumni publications.

Our New to Lowell employees took a tour of the roots of Lowell by visiting our three previous campuses, guided by Head of School Donna. Beginning at the 34th and Lowell St. campus, they learned how Lowell was formed in 1965 in the basement of a church, then moved on to 16th and Kennedy, where the group learned about the birthplace of our time-honored traditions like the Rose and Teal groups, the Bazaar, Stone Soup, and the Auction (now Fête). This was also the location where Lisa P. joined the faculty, and yes, she is still teaching in the Pre-Primary School! New teacher Laura K-L ('08) particularly enjoyed revisiting the familiar space.

The tour concluded at 16th and Decatur, where the parent association was formalized, as well as our intentional focus on DEI and accreditation.

What's next for Lowell at the Kalmia campus? And what features of a Lowell education do our recent alums treasure most? Is it the Capstone trips? The inclusive athletics program? Performing music and drama in the Black Box Theatre? The focus on STEAM and social justice? There are so many aspects of our history that we still value today and that hold endless possibilities for the future!


Summer is a special time at Lowell with hundreds of young campers coming back year after year for fun in the sun. We snapped this pic after the Session 2 Mario Kart races of summer staff who illustrate the lasting connections of Summer Camp and generations of go-kart races all in one photo—so cool!

Pictured L to R: A Lowell alum who attended camp since elementary school and became a counselor, next to ➡️ one of *his* first counselors as a go-kart camper, who has been coming to Summer Camp as a participant or counselor for close to 20 years, next to ➡️ *his* very first mentor as a counselor-in-training and the go-kart master himself, Mario!

It's National Ice Cream Day! We celebrated a few days early with our alums who are also working as camp counselors this summer. It was the perfect day to beat the heat with popsicles, ice cream sandwiches, and of course, Lowell alum t-shirts! Our amazing alumni relations staff even provided curbside delivery—so sweet!

It was fun to see alums from the Class of 2019 at a reunion, before they graduated from high school. We wish them well as they set off to new adventures, and hope to see them again soon!

We love our alums and can't wait to see you back on campus!


Our students were thrilled to see former music and theater teacher Mike when he visited Parkside from the other side of the country. What a great reunion!

Alums, if you ever need a campus visit to lift your spirits, send us a message—we're happy to help arrange a return to Lowell!

STEAMfest (formerly STEMfest) was a huge success this weekend! Stations celebrating science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics filled the gym and front field. Thank you to all our presenters and volunteers—including special guests from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)!—for such engaging activities. We even welcomed back some alums to detail the work they're doing to protect the environment.
