Teacher Notes

When I had sleepy students in my class I tried to find the reasons.  Some students had to take care of younger siblings while a parent worked at night, others were on medications and still others stayed up late watching movies or playing games.  In my teaching I stressed the need for adequate sleep, proper nutrition and exercise.

Parents please have your children turn off all of their devices and try to make sure they get enough sleep so they can function optimally during the school day.
