Alexander Dawson School Podcast

Jan 29, 2019

Assistant Head of School Roxanne Stansbury in conversation with students of Dawson’s Sleep Week Committee about sleep awareness and the upcoming Sleep Week Campaign. 

The Sleep Week idea originated when a few students attended the Challenge Success Fall Conference and learned about the impacts of stress on sleep.  They returned to campus with the desire to raise awareness among the Dawson community.  In this episode, they discuss the causes of irregular sleep patterns, extracurricular activity schedules, the need for unstructured time and quality family time, and the correlations between sleep and mental health.  They also introduce the plans for Sleep Week, including a No Homework/Electronics Night, a Late Start Day, a visit from a certified Sleep Doctor, and a pajamas and overnight diapers drive for Foster Kinship.
