Stepping Stones Celebrates World Down Syndrome Day with Virtual Music Show

March 22nd, 2021

In celebration of World Down Syndrome Day, the students of the Stepping Stones School were treated to a special virtual show by Matt Mazur of Turtle Dance Music.  Featuring music, bubbles and plenty of jokes, the students enjoyed laughing and singing the afternoon away while sporting blue and yellow outfits and mismatched socks, hallmarks of Down Syndrome awareness.  The day was complete with pizza and ice cream sundaes for lunch!
