March is National Sleep Awareness Month! —The Gift of Sleep

Sleep is a gift we give our bodies.  It is the time for cell and tissue regeneration.  Sleep powers the mind, restores the body, and fortifies virtually every system in the body. But how much sleep do we really need in order to get these benefits?

How Much Sleep is Recommended for Each Age Group?

The National Sleep Foundation’s recommendations for nightly sleep are broken down into nine age groups.     National Sleep Foundation guidelines1

How to Ease into Day Light Savings:  Keep your same sleep routines.  A few days before March 13, 2022, start going to bed 15 minutes earlier each night.  In the morning, get plenty of sunshine to reset your circadian rhythm.


CLASSY – a continued focus at SVMS

Count Your Blessings – Look for the Good – Acts of Kindness – Self-Motivation – Service – You are Valued

L = Look for the Good  — Each day students are asked to “Look for the Good” around them and record it in their CLASSY journal. Martin Walsh said, “When you look for the good in others, you discover the best in yourself.”
