The athletic department at North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake has created "Sleep Week," starting Monday.

"We're trying to raise the importance of sleep," said Audrius Barzdukas, head of athletics.

There's a pajamas day, another day to bring a pillow and another day when "you come dressed as your favorite G-rated dream."

"We're trying to make our whole world a little healthier because we treasure and value sleep as an integral part of the human experience," Barzdukas said.

Basketball standout Renaldo Woolridge plans to show up in his SpongeBob pajamas.

"I'll go all out," he said.
