How are you incorporating your environmental projects into your school's curriculum?: 
Bonner Springs Elementary always been an environmentally conscious school by recycling as many of our by-products as possible and teaching our students that conservation is a moral and physical imperative for our community and our world. Most recently our 4th grade incorporated recycling into their Expeditionary Learning unit of study. For next year our entire school theme will revolve around our world and how we fit in it. All grade levels are working to ensure that there are several units of study that address this important concept while maintaining close alignment of curriculum to State and local standards.
Accomplishments: 
Our BSE Green Team is totally committed to our world focus for the next school year. Leading up to that, the entire staff joined together on June 3rd to "refresh" our building and grounds with over $1000 of trees, scrubs, and flowers. The money was earned, in part, through our recycling program. Every effort is being made to coordinate our efforts with State and local agencies so that the latest techniques and strategies are employed in our landscape design. Consideration is made for the type and number of plants we grow and how they will enhance not only the beauty of our school, but improve the habitat for desirable insects and birds, reduce energy costs with natural shading, and reduce watering and maintenance costs by using intelligent design.
