DETROIT - April 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Sweet Dreamzzz are on the way for the 104 students of Global Preparatory Academy (Roseville). The students will be receiving a R.E.M. (Rest. Educate. Motivate.) Sleep Program that will give them the opportunity to learn how to get a better night’s sleep allowing them to learn more effectively and succeed academically. The lessons learned from the program will also benefit the health and overall well-being of these deserving children.

This R.E.M. program will be partially funded by the Sojourner Foundation. Students from Divine Child High School, Dearborn, are making blankets for the program and they will be helping distribute them on program day.  Representatives from the AGC of Michigan will be on hand the day before to help set up for the program, they have supported Sweet Dreamzzz for over 10 years.

Sweet Dreamzzz, Inc., a non-profit organization, educates at-risk children and their families on the importance of sleep and gives them bedtime essentials so they can feel rested and ready to learn.  The R.E.M. (Rest. Educate. Motivate.) Sleep Program is a unique program that deals with nighttime - a period in a child’s life that is rarely addressed.  The program is twofold, bringing both warmth and comfort to the children as well as vital information they need to ensure a good night’s rest.  The R.E.M. Sleep Program starts with a 30-minute presentation educating the children on the importance of sleep and good sleep hygiene habits.  After the presentation, each child receives a sleep kit consisting of a sleeping bag, t-shirt, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a reading book by sleep professional, Dr. James B. Maas.

The K-5 students at Global Preparatory Academy will learn how their bodies grow while they sleep and how important it is for them to get enough rest.  They will learn the do’s and don’ts of a bedtime routine and they will each receive a Sweet Dreamzzz Sleep Kit. The program will be held on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 with the first session beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Since its inception in 1998, Sweet Dreamzzz has been able to serve over 40,000 children with sleep education.  For information on how you can help by volunteering or organizing collections for Sweet Dreamzzz, or to find out about getting one of the sleep programs at your school, call the office at 248-478-3242 or visit www.SweetDreamzzz.org.
