Experts say that adolescents should be getting at least 9 hours of sleep every night. Most high schoolers get less than 7. Join the Newton South School Council on April 7 from 7-8:30PM in the South Auditorium for an expert-led conversation about the benefits of increasing adolescent sleep through a later high school start time. We will be joined by Dr. Judith Owens, Director of Sleep Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital, will speak on her research around adolescent sleep issues and the implications of inadequate sleep on adolescents. We’ll also hear from students and get an update on School Council’s work to date. This forum is the beginning of a city-wide conversation around this important mental, emotional, and physical health issue for teens. We hope you can join us! If you’d like more information and to get updates on School Council’s work on school start times, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
