Learning (and Fun!) Continue Through Summer at Stepping Stones

July 29th, 2021

The students at Stepping Stones kicked off the extended school year with lots of fun and learning. They have been participating in various sensory, art, and academic activities. The children are especially loving water play, which has included splashing around at water tables and running through a sprinkler. They celebrated the Fourth of July with their own “fireworks” and are enjoying learning about the Olympics and carrying their own torches.

The school will close for the summer on August 12 and reopen for the 2021-22 school year on September 8.

The Arc of Essex County's Stepping Stones School is a Department of Education approved private school for students with disabilities serving children ages 3-10.
