Snow Elementary School

Early to bed, ready to learn

While your child is asleep, his or her brain is busy organizing and storing information that has been learned during the day.  Use these guidelines to help your child get a good night’s sleep and improve learning and memory:

  • Elementary school students need 9-11 hours of sleep every night.  Experts recommend a range because some children require more sleep than others.  If your child has a hard time waking up or feels drowsy in school, move to an earlier bedtime.
  • The light from a computer (or any screen) can prevent your child from winding down.  Turn off anything with a screen at least an hour before bedtime.
