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.
Smudge Art spends the day at Dorothy Dalgliesh
Posted on January 24th, 2017
Thank you to our Home and School Council for giving each student the opportunity to expand their talents and participate in a Smudge Art class. Smudge Art spent the day at Dorothy Dalgliesh School with each classroom as each student created their own Bobble Head out of clay.
Now the creations air dry for about one week and then they will get their finishing touches!
