Save the Date! Join the Newton South School Council and the Brown and Oak Hill PTOs to explore the research on starting high school later in the morning and the impact it has on teenagers. Continue the community conversation around the the impact of inadequate sleep on our teens on Wednesday, April 6 7:00-8:30PM in the Brown Middle School Auditorium.
The featured speaker will be Dr. Christopher Landrigan, Director of the Sleep and Patient Safety Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Research Director of Inpatient Pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Landrigan is also a South parent; he was the featured speaker at January’s High School Start Time Forum at Newton North. For South parents who have not been able to attend the two prior forums, this is a great chance to catch up on the research and understand why Newton’s School Committee is studying the issue.
