Video Games and Sleep

Do you ever wonder why your kids are tired and grumpy in the morning? Maybe they are spending too much time on a video game. More and more research is coming out about how detrimental screen time can be for your kids. Some interesting new research is coming out about how video games, especially violent video games can affect the way your child develops and thinks about social situations, compassion, and acceptance of others. Specifically, this article explains how video games can disrupt sleep and make your child grumpy, tired, and unable to cope with daily stressors life presents. I am not suggesting that kids entirely be banned from screen time, but you may want to place limitations and boundaries, including when and how much. A good indicator if your child has spent too much time on a screen is io you call him or her away and he or she comes happily and  willingly. If they refuse, get angry or upset - they've likely spent too much time on a screen.

School News

Dorothy Dalgliesh School wraps up the week with our Christmas Concert, Sock Hop, Community Christmas Delivery and a great Christmas dinner for the staff and students.

After presenting the best Christmas Concert ever we just kept on rocking onto Wednesday with a Sock Hop in the gym. Thanks to everyone for donating socks to the annual Sock It To 'Em campaign. With your help we donated over 110 pairs of socks to help make someone's Christmas a little bit warmer!

Thursday morning Dorothy Dalgliesh School shared some Christmas wishes with our community by visiting residents home and leaving a "little something" on their doorknobs. Merry Christmas from Dorothy Dalgliesh!

At noon a hot turkey dinner with all the trimmings was served to all students and staff at Dorothy Dalgliesh School. It was delicious and everyone loved it! Thanks to our School Council mom's and all those who volunteered by helping in the kitchen and donating food items.
