How will you honor Earth Day this year? The theme for Earth Day 2023 is once again "Invest in our Planet". Every day we make choices about how we live and leave our planet. While we recognize an official annual Earth Day, won't you make Earth Day every day? Now IS the time to take action and the time to affect change. Your "investment" can start small and grow to have a significant effect on our environment. Consider starting with what is meaningful to you or building on what you have already started.
Climate Change presents the greatest threat to the health of our planet and human health. Solutions require action from everyone. How will you invest in our planet?
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates

EARTH WEEK BINGO

In honor of Earth Day, HSD has created a fun Earth Day BINGO week-long activity that can guide your family in developing more sustainable practices. We encourage you to print it out and put it on your refrigerator or bulletin board for full family participation. The BINGO card contains many useful and interesting links to further assist you. (Remember to recycle the card when the week is over OR keep it up and continue on!)

Resource conservation is an important initiative in the Hillsboro School District. By monitoring and managing our use of electricity, natural gas, and water, we can reduce our consumption, save money, and use resources wisely. In addition, by lowering our usage of electricity and natural gas, we are reducing our carbon dioxde emissions, enhancing healthy learning and working environments. The Hillsboro School District strives to understand, educate, and practice sustainability strategies in collaboration with our community stakeholders.
