Adequate sleep helps children to have more energy and learn better in school. However, children nowadays sleep much less than children did 20 years ago. A team from the School of Public Heath at the University of Alberta are interested in how well children in the Parkland School Division sleep. We would like to invite you and your Grade 4 or 5 child to participate in this study. Your participation may help us determine what helps children sleep better.
Information packages have been distributed to our grade 4 and 5 students. We ask that you take a look at it, fill out the consent form and return it to the school no later than Friday October 14th.
