Stepping Stones Celebrates Cinco de Mayo!

May 6th, 2019

On Friday, May 3, students in the Transitional Kindergarten classes at The Arc of Essex County’s Stepping Stones School celebrated Cinco de Mayo! The students helped make guacamole, each taking a turn to scoop the avocados from the skin and mash them. Everyone enjoyed a special lunch of cheese quesadillas and of course, chips and salsa! The students loved dancing to Mariachi music and playing games with a sombrero.
