John Hancock Charter School - Aug. 5, 2022
Start Adjusting Your Child's Sleep Schedule NOW!
A sleepy child equals a grumpy child, and you don’t want a groggy, exhausted child on the first day of school.
If your child is used to going to bed late and waking up late, start adjusting his sleep schedule a few weeks before the first day of school. Move bedtime up by 15 minutes each day until your child is able to wake up at the desired time in the morning.
A well-rested child is a happy child. Plus, an early wake time will allow your child enough time to eat a healthy breakfast and go through the morning routine (we will talk about this in 1 second) at his own pace.
Even though having your kid wake up early sounds like a horrible idea, it’s better than rushing him through the morning routine and being sleepy and hangry by the
time he gets to school.
Drop off begins at 8:15 am and ends at 8:25 am
Studies show that drinking water prior to an exam may increase your academic performance. Your brain is roughly 75% water and when it's functioning on a “full tank”, you will be able to think more clearly, increase your ability to focus, and experience greater clarity and creativity.
Children have higher nutrient demands than adults, to support their healthy bone growth and brain development. The absence of snacks at school or choosing unhealthy items to snack on can have a major impact on various aspects of your child’s health. Children need a steady supply of nutrients to fuel their bodies and brains so that they grow and develop properly. It’s recommended that children have at least two nutritious snacks each day.
The first day of school is an early release day.
