Daily Brain Tip - Snooze You Lose

Is your child getting enough sleep? Although there's no magical number of hours required by all kids in a certain age group, generally kids ages 5 to 12 need about 9-11 hours of sleep a night.

Sleep deprived individuals have a shorter attention span, impaired memory, and a longer reaction time. Adequate sleep is important to the memory storage process. (Information is encoded into longterm memory sites during sleep).

Please remind your students to get adequate sleep for their mental and physical health!
