Stressbusters: The Stressbusters Committee aims to reduce the negative effects of stress on students at Whitman. We work with the administration, the guidance department, parents, and students to identify and remove unnecessary sources of stress and to improve students’ ability to cope with normal levels of stress.
The Stressbusters Committee is a subcommittee of the Counseling Advisory Council and was formed in 2004. It consists of parents, students, the school principal, and Whitman’s resource counselor.
