Make A Difference at Hartman

Do you want to make a difference at your student's school? You can make a big impact in a small amount of time! Teachers always need help cutting, copying, laminating, sharpening pencils, etc. You will be much appreciated and make a big difference at Hartman. We have it set up so you can come during office hours. You don't have to have a set schedule! If you are interested contact school counselor, Holly Hensley.

Counselor's Corner

We made it through the second week of school! My family is adjusting, as I'm sure yours is as well. Our students are working hard in school and their minds and bodies are tired. Remember that our students do best when they have a night time routine and get plenty of sleep. If your child is still tired you may want to move bed time up so it's even earlier. I had to do this with my own children.

"Children need a good night's sleep for their overall school performance," said Kristin Avis, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine.

"Lack of sleep can lead to problems with attention and memory in the classroom, affect impulse control and mood regulation lead to anxiety and even depression," Avis said.

Avis said kids ages 6-12 should get nine hours sleep nightly as should adolescents ages 13-18—but typically they average little more than seven hours per night.

"Often parents think one night of sleep loss won't matter, but that's all it takes to affect them the next day," Avis explained. "If they are chronically deprived, it can snowball and make matters worse."

Avis recommends a consistent bedtime seven days a week.

"It keeps their clock set so they can go to bed at a certain time, sleep well through night and wake up well rested the next morning," Avis said.

Have a great weekend and get lots of sleep!
