Sweet Treats for the Stepping Stones School

July 25th, 2019

The beautiful, summer weather has brought with it a wide range of engaging activities for the students at The Arc of Essex County’s Stepping Stones School. On Wednesday, July 24, the Transitional Kindergarten spent time soaking up the sun as the class enjoyed water play and the playground. The students were elbow deep in the water tables and running through sprinklers to cool off. Later on, they were treated to ice cream from the Towne Scoop Ice Cream Truck sponsored by The Candle Lighters. During this annual visit, students learn the value of money and how to make change while selecting their favorite frozen treat.

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. Located in Roseland, NJ, the school is designed to meet the developmental and educational needs of children with cognitive impairments such as Down syndrome and other students with similar educational and developmental needs.
