ISC APRIL HOT TOPIC: Continuing the Conversation: Sleep and the Teenage Brain April 14, 9:30 am, District Administration Offices, Room 264
Last August, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that middle and high schools delay the start of class until 8:30 am or later, stating that "chronic sleep loss in children and adolescents is one of the most common - and easily fixable - public health issues in the U.S. today." Please join the next ISC meeting for a roundtable discussion on sleep and school start times.

Go for the Greens scored big
On March 18 and 19, over 350 Merion students participated in Go for the Greens sponsored by the LMSD Wellness Council. The event gave students a chance to taste and then vote for two vegetables: jicama and radishes. For both vegetables, about 60% of students liked them and only 40% said "yuck." Ask your child what they preferred!
Here are the results:
We want to hear from you!
