Waking up too Early?? By: Sydney Green

Waking up too Early?? Kids rouse themselves too early and this is a serious issue all around! Some people on my bus live 30 min. away from school, that means they have to wake up at 5:30. I only have to wake up at 6:45, but I am still tired. John says “Well I would actually like to wake up earlier, because then I can hang out with friends later.� Some people say that waking up early for school is good for students to get a good start to their day!

Even though it sounds convincing at first, it fail to mention that when kids are tired like from waking up early they are exhausted and it’s hard for them to focus or pay any attention. I normally get head aches a lot if I am too tired then I have to go home because most of the time it turns into a head ache. Summer, a 7th grader here at GMS says “ I wake up at 6:40 and I withdraw from my house around 7:30, but I would like to sleep in!” Besides the bell doesn’t ring tell 8:20 and all we do is sit in the mini theatre. Occasionally I get to school at 7:50, so I am in there for 30 min. Sienna, a 7th grader here at GMS says “I wake up at 6:30 when I don’t have basketball practice, but on days I do have basketball practice I wake up at 6:00!” “I would rather sleep in!” After a survey that was sent out to 14 people, I got 10 responses back. I asked what time do you wake up to got to school? The results were like, 7 or 6 or 5. Then I asked Do you like waking up early? 3 people said yes, 6 people said no,and one person said kinda. Lastly I asked, Would you rather sleep in? Or wake up earlier? Everyone except one person said they would like to sleep in, the one person said they would rather wake up earlier. I would like to wake up at 8:00 but thats just my opinion. Sienna says “ I would probably want to awaken at 7:00 or 7:15.” School should start later so we can get adequate sleep.

Too tired to Learn?
