Principles Assignments

"When it is asked how much it will cost to protect our environment, one more question should be asked; How much will it cost our civilization if we do not?" ~ Gaylord Nelson, Wisconsin Senator & Governor and Founder of Earth Day

This is where students will find the brief listing for what is happening in the Honors Sustainable Principles class each day, what the outside of class work is and what is due for each day. Also, supporting resources in the form of links to websites, pages and documents will be listed with what is to be worked on. For more specific details on what happens in class or for the outside of class work, please visit the specific dates you are looking for on the Honors Principles Calendar and click on "more details."
