Currently in the world there are over 240,000 Peace Poles! Ms. Lopez's 3rd grade worked hard to create an "Arizona Peace Pole". Students created drawings of symbols that they thought represented Arizona. If you look close you will see cactus flowers, cowboy hats, Native America symbols and more!! We even painted the pole to look like the Saguaro cacti that are seen all across southern Arizona especially in Saguaro National park in Tucson, Arizona. Our hope is for peace especially in our city of Tucson, after the tragedy of 2011. We appreciate the thoughtful artistry of our Third grade! Great work!
