On December 9, Stepping Stones School hosted The Arc of Essex County’s Parents’ Night Out event, which provided Arc parents with the opportunity to enjoy an evening out while knowing their children were safely enjoying activities with their peers.
The children and teens in attendance ranged in age from 7 to 19, and all had a fun night of making winter wonderland-themed crafts, playing games, and enjoying conversation with their friends over a pizza dinner.
The Parents Night Out program costs were offset by generous donations to The Arc of Essex County’s Community Recreation Fund through the 2021 Annual Appeal. The 2.5-hour evening cost just $20 per child, making it not just a valuable time for families, but also affordable.
The next Parents Night Out is scheduled for Friday, February 24 at Studio Arc in Fairfield. To learn more, contact Assistant Director of Children and Family Services Erica Zupkus at 973-535-1181 ext. 1275 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
