Especially with testing coming up, please be mindful of this:
Is your child getting the recommended hours of sleep?
How many hours of sleep are enough? According to sleep expert Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, M.D. of Mayo Sleep Clinic, school-age children should have 10-11 of quality sleep each night. This is uninterrupted sleep time. Depending on your child’s morning wake up schedule, a practical bed time for most elementary age school children is about 8 p.m. As always, frequent hand washing, a healthy diet, plenty of fluids for hydration, and recommended sleep hours will help your child be their very best for a great school day!

· Are you interested in a free school lunch?
· Do you love young people?
· Do you have 30 minutes a month you could spare?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, then you would make a great lunch buddy! Lunch buddies commit to eating lunch with and establishing a relationship with a selected student. We ask that you commit to one day per month, but of course you are free to eat with your lunch buddy more often than that if you wish. Our goal is to help pair students with another meaningful adult. If you are interested, contact Dr. Lloyd - 438-8000. We need YOU!
