As we all know, school can be very stressful at times and many people forget to give themselves a break. Everything seems to pile up and students may begin to feel lost. DE-STRESS FOR SUCCESS is a CLUB for those who need a breather & a break!
We will meet in the library every Wednesday during lunch to destress. We will do activities such as make stress balls, do hand wax, massage machines, go through relaxation techniques and will create an environment for those who are stressed about school or anything happening in life to get the break they deserve. We will also provide snacks and/or pizza once a month to surprise those who join us! Please fill out the Google Form in your email if you think the De-Stress Club is a good idea! If enough students respond positively, the administration will grant us permission to DeStress! All the best from your DeStress leaders Caroline Collier, Grace Heilman, and Lillian Hoyer.
