Rylin, Ms. Cook and Nicholas The eagle is a symbol of Alert Bay because you see eagles everywhere, downtown, on the beach, and tourists take pictures of them. They are awesome looking birds, and there are more eagles than crows and ravens. Eagles always go to the beaches when people dump fish heads and fish guts there. This is the reason I chose an eagle for the symbol of Alert Bay.

This is why I think the thunderbird represents Alert Bay. The thunderbird was one of the first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Namgis people. The thunderbird saw a man struggling to lift the beam of the big house, so he transformed into a man and asked him if he could help. He transformed back into a thunderbird and lifted the heavy beams. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the thunderbird represents the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Namgis. By Adrian Gordan-Valan

Winter is . . . White, soft, fluffy snow, Snowballs flying over my head, Kids playing, laughing, having fun, Snowflakes falling on my tongue, Skating on the big rink, Making snow angels Sledding like lightning down the big hill. Pierson

Cole Winter is . . . Snow slowly falling down on the ground and piling up. The delicious smell of fresh gingerbread and sweet hot chocolate. Playing hockey, skiing and tubing – time for having fun. Tyler

Winter is . . . - a steaming cup of hot chocolate with a mountain of whip cream on top - the glorious spicy smell of gingerbread cookies baking - licking fresh icicles - a bowl of delicious chicken noodle soup to warm me up inside - curling up by the fire in my warm snuggie blanket - watching movies on TV Thalina
