Second Grade Class Quokka

   Hello, I am a quokka.  I am so happy that Mrs. Clarke brought me to Hillside School!  I love visiting her classroom; I am looking forward to learning so much in second grade!  Through the World Wildlife Fund your class has adopted a quokka.  Quokkas like me are at risk of becoming endangered and your class's donation will help to protect quokkas and their habitats.  Later this year we will be learning all about animal habitats and plants!  
   I am very excited about spending some time with you and your family.  I love meeting new people and going to new places.  We can even teach the people we meet about quokkas, if they have never met one before.  Please help me to record my travels with you by taking some photographs or drawing pictures of our time together and writing about our adventures.  We will read your journal entry aloud at school and share the pictures so everyone can hear about the fun we had together.  
   Everyone in the class will have a chance to take me home this year, even Mrs. Clarke!  Your parents will sign you up to take me home for one weekend during the school year.  Let the adventures begin!
                                                       Your furry Australian friend,
 This is one of my cousins from Australia!
