A few weeks ago, I posted a guest entry by high school student, Alexandra Keehan, who formed a Stunt the Stress club and website at her school. Alexandra is now trying to galvanize students everywhere. I sent out the following email to students who have contacted me or posted comments here. Please pass along Alexandra’s email to any students you think will be interested:
Let’s Stop the Stress
by Alexandra Keehan
My name is Alexandra Keehan, a senior in high school.
Sophmore year of high school was the hardest school year I had gone through yet and prompted me to start a Stunt the Stress club and web site.
The goal is to motivate students to make a change. One way to do that is through working with our educators. School stress can be relieved if we can enlighten and negotiate with teachers. As they say, “the wheel that squeaks gets the grease.”
Another important part in overcoming stress is to have the tools and resources to combat it. Believe it or not there are teachers, parents, and other adults helping our cause. By creating a network and sharing information be can better the situation and find support.
I believe if we work together we can make a difference. If you want to spread stress awareness and be part of the stress-free movement then email me, visit stuntthestress.com, and stay in contact with Sara.
