For six weeks this summer, the children at Stepping Stones School participated in the Extended School Year (ESY), which included opportunities to learn and to enjoy the summer season.
Activities included learning about Independence Day and fireworks; water play sessions that featured sprinklers, water tables, and more; sensory play that included tower building and sand and ocean-themed sensory bins, and a celebration of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The ESY ended in August and students will return to start the 2023-24 school year in September.
