Stop Take A Rest

Yesterday, S.T.A.R. hosted their semiannual  Stop Take A Rest event, where mentors and buddies gathered together for some healthy snacks, fruity smoothies, and relaxing back rubs, while listening to some holiday music.  Tasty pretzels, nutty almonds, and dried cranberries were the perfect snack for anyone who had the munchies. 

The smoothie station was a huge success. People were eager to make their own smoothies with strawberries, bananas, blueberries, ice, yogurt, and/or peanut butter.  These treats were guilt-free and were the perfect balance to a most likely fattening Thanksgiving break.  For those who stayed a little later, an assortment of sandwiches, wraps, and chips were delivered.  

Throughout the event, the Stressbusters were available to give any students back rubs to help ease any of the stress they may have.  In addition, students got to sit back, mingle, and laugh together.  It was definitely a relaxing event and a wonderful way to start off our last couple of days at school.
