Day Programs, Staff, and Family Celebrate Read Across America at Stepping Stones

March 11th, 2019

Each year, staff, day program participants, and family members join the Stepping Stones students in celebration of Read Across America.  This year, the week-long initiative designed to foster a love of reading kicked off on March 4th.  Throughout the course of the week, nearly 25 members of The Arc spent time reading with the students.  Class favorites included many of Dr. Suess’ classics, Cat in the Hat themed crafts, and a special green eggs and ham lunch on Friday, March 8th.  Thank you to all of the volunteers who dedicated their time to this special event!
