I am the sibling of a student currently attending Melrose High School. I am contacting you to request that the district implement healthier start times for middle and high school students attending Melrose Public Schools. Currently, Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School and Melrose High School have a start time of 7:45 a.m. Studies show there should be a delay in morning classes until 8:30 a.m. or later. Doing this will maximize the intellectual potential of the students in our district.
To begin with teenagers usually need 8.5 hours of sleep a day. Not enough sleep for students has gone to far. 22,000 kids all across the USA are stressed and tired for school. School should start later because starting school early is not just a student complaint, it's an observation backed up by science. Studies have shown the brain doesn't properly function until two hours after students leave there rooms in the morning. 70 percent of teens aren't getting enough sleep. Activities also can interfere with a students sleep.
Did you know that not enough sleep for teens can lead to poor organization, poor time-management skills, and can make them impulsive? People are debating about how teens need more sleep. Not enough sleep isn’t healthy. Even though people are concerned about their children’s sleep, schools can’t always start as late as we want. If schools start later, this can affect after school activities such as clubs and sports. This can also affect many other things such as higher taxes, for more buses. But if we start a littler later, will be way healthier and more educated, and simply have a better attitude. Also, we will be able to be well rested, and ready for a new school day. If keeping our children healthier means more money, it’s worth
About 87 percent of American high school students are chronically sleep deprived, according to a 2006 survey from the National Sleep Foundation. Most middle schoolers and high schoolers are sleep deprived because school starts too early. Most schools start really early, causing students to not get enough sleep. Schools should start later to prevent emotional disorders, depression, and anxiety from being sleep deprived.
It is important for teenagers to get eight to nine hours of sleep at night to not only succeed in daily tasks but in school as well. Many high school students are not doing as well
To begin, homework is taking away students sleep time. Studies shows that a person sayed “My 16-year-old daughter is finally entering the homestretch of sophomore year, and she has been chronically sleep deprived since September. The reasons are multiple but when you add together 45 minutes of homework per class per night, it adds up to between 5 and 7 hours of sleep on an average school night. Throw in a term paper or heavy exam week and the average can easily drop to 3 or 4. In fact, multiple
First of all students are not getting enough sleep at home. “Teens need 8.5-9.25 hours of sleep each night,” says Sarah McKibben from ASCD Education Update “Wake Up Call”. According to the article, most kids are not getting this much sleep and that is why they are falling asleep in class. McKibben’s article also states teens in puberty get their best sleep
There are 24 hours in a day, 8 of those hours belong to school. From the moment when a student wakes up, they begin to prepare for school then go to school, most schools start around 8:00-9:00 am, so most students get up 1-2 hours earlier to get ready. Students need at least 8-9 hours of sleep to be able to function. With students having after school activities that take up around 2 hours, students are exhausted and when they get home all the want to do is relax, but some of them have responsibilities that they have to do, which gives them less time to relax from a long day of school. On top of having homework students end up staying up late getting all their work done, which cause them to be less focus the next day not allowing the
We all know this; waking up to a blaring alarm or an annoyed parent. You try to bury yourself in sheets and protect yourself from the harsh light. You drag yourself out of bed with hair blown to one side of your head. Walking across the hall like an extra from “The Walking Dead,” you eat breakfast and brush (or the other way around) and throw on some clothes. You head out and start another miserable morning. This is pretty much how I start every school morning. This is probably how a lot of you start your mornings. There’s no worse way to start a day of school than to wake up with a case of “Zombie Daze Syndrome” (ZDS). One might say that waking up tired isn’t that bad, but it is way,
Teenagers are in an important stage of their growth, which means that they should get all the sleep they need. We need at least 9-10 hours of sleep and it’s proven that only 15% of teenagers get the amount of sleep they need. It’s important to sleep at the right amount of time to stay focused during the day and at school. According to the website Sleep Center it states that “ Teenagers that don’t get the sleep they need end up getting sleep disorder such as depression and other health issues” . Getting to bed late at night could affect your health. Us teens are more likely to struggle at school or suffer from depression.
Try to give yourself acupressure (a Chinese medical theory that energy flows through certain points in your body) to restore, balance, and regulate your mind, body and spirit.
Good morning everyone. I’m Nur Atiqah binti maznan and today I will deliver a speech title ‘People should care more about sleep’
An average student would spend hours on schoolwork a day, which can be very stressful. A high school student will use half of their day around school relation. Almost all elementary to high school students will likely to agree that homework should not be assigned. The majority of students complain about homework yet teachers don’t usually understand why. While homework gives benefits to students, unnecessary homework should not be assigned due to the fact that there are enough school hours, it consumes time, and the development of poor health is encouraged. “Homework has been a part of students’ lives for so long that the idea of not doing it can seem incredible, surreal, or even impossible. But if [people] stop to think about it, the truth is that homework is not necessary” (Mathprepa).
Teenagers all over the country are struggling with their sleep. They struggle to get out of bed every day. The weekend is their only break. Why is this, schools start too early. School start times should be later. When schools switch to later start times they find huge decrees in unexcused absences and tardiness. They will also see positive student growth with test scores and grades. Finally, there would be a wonderful change in depression and other mental illnesses that are now too common in teens.
