For the past several days, the fourth grade students at RV Elementary have been reading about legends. One of the subjects touched on was the totem pole and what it meant in noting a tribe's history. Taking their lessons one step beyond, the students combined this new knowledge with creative writing and some craftsmanship and created their own totem poles. Each student researched and wrote reports on the animals found on a totem before creating their images out of colored paper. These totem poles, (being displayed by students Cheyenne Hill, Sawyer Cockburn, Tristan Mamman and Mercedes Bichlmeier,) as well as their accompanying reports can now be seen in the RV Elementary library.
