- Learning begins when the bell rings

East Guernsey faculty and staff regularly emphasize three keys to succeeding throughout school: attendance, work ethic and extra participation. Students who show up on time, work hard and get involved will certainly get the most out of their middle school and high school years. This is not to say that they will not face challenges. School should be challenging to adequately prepare students for life after graduation. Students who work on these three keys, however, will find the strength within and the resources around them necessary to achieve in the face of obstacles. These keys not only help students to find academic success but lifelong fulfillment as well.
Many studies have been done that link sleep and learning. Researchers have found that well-rested minds are able to learn more easily and retain more information. So, how much sleep does your child need?

3-6 years old 10-12 Hours per day
7-12 years old 10-11 Hours per day
12-18 years old 8-9 Hours per day

Is your child spending countless hours in front of a TV or tablet? Do you wish that your child would spend their time doing other things such as playing outside, reading or doing homework and chores?
Have them “buy” their screen time instead. For every one minute they would like to spend in front of the TV or tablet, they must spend one minute doing an activity of your choice such as homework, playing outside, chores or reading. They will need to purchase their time with these minutes. Time doing these things at school does not count and banking time from a previous day does not work either. Time must be used on the day it’s earned.
Give it a try! You may be pleasantly surprised with the results!
