OUR GUINEA PIGS NEED A NEW HOME
Mrs. Potter's classroom guinea pigs, Gene and Rocket, are in need of a new home. In our efforts to get the children back in the classroom, we've learned that the guidelines do not allow the guinea pigs to return!
Mrs. Potter takes them home every summer, but newly acquired allergies are now leaving her with a heavy heart and looking for a good, loving home for Gene and Rocket. These two are very social animals and love the attention they receive in the classroom with the students every day.
If you are interested in adopting both or one of these delights, please reply to this email and we will get you more information.
