Most of you have probably heard from your child by now that I am expecting a baby in May.  Every summer I ask for a family to volunteer to give a loving home to our class pets for our summer vacation.  This year is a little different because the lucky family will get to keep our guinea pigs (Ron and Darth Vader) from the first week of May (when I have the baby) until we return to school in August!  The only requirements are that you promise to keep them safe from any other animals in your home, make sure they have food and water at all times, and that someone will gently handle the guinea pigs a few times a week.  If your family is interested in taking care of our much loved class pets for the summer please contact me by April 17.  If a few families are interested, I will pick names from a hat.  Thank you!
