Posted by Lowell School on 12/31/16 12:02 PM

2016_top_ten_blogs.jpg2016 was one for the record books, and Lowell's School Talk blog tackled topics large and small and everything in between—from "How to Talk to Your Kids About the Election" to "Action Steps to Address Math Anxiety" and "How to Create a Play Space that will Build Your Preschooler's Independence."

We added several new bloggers this year, including Matt Frattali, Charles Gibbs, Jason Novak, Stefania Rubino, Sarah Spencer, Natalie Stapert, Jamie Weng, Todd and Carol Wilson, and Kavan Yee. Growing our team allowed us to expand the expertise represented in our posts, and respond to world events and parent needs more nimbly. 

Below are our top 10 posts:
