Steppingstone Family Blast

April 9, 2020

Updates!

Please note a few changes due to the holiday weekend! Steppingstone will be closed on Friday, 4/10, and Monday, 4/13. There will be no virtual hangouts on these days. We heard the school district MAY have the food sites open on Tuesday, 4/14 and Thursday, 4/16 next week due to the holidays. They MAY do this instead of the usual Monday and Thursday food sites. Please check this website regularly to see if they make the shift:
