There's no doubt that we, as parents and/or teachers, often don't get enough sleep. However, it's also clear that many of our students are not getting enough sleep. Please see the article below with really interesting information. Here are some highlights:
On gadgets: "Move electronics out of the bedroom or use special software to minimize their impact."
On quantity of sleep needed: "10 to 13 hours per day for preschoolers, nine to 11 for kids between ages 6 and 13, and eight to 10 hours for teens."
As we use Chromebooks more and more, please be vigilant about your children's use of them at home, especially after bedtime!
Thanks to the many of you who have already signed up to help out with our booth that day!
