Fifth- and sixth-graders from the Twin Cities German Immersion School walked from their school on Como Avenue on June 2 to hand deliver a donation to the Como Zoo and Conservatory. The students raised $400.27 during the school’s Entrepreneur Day in May, which they presented to Jennifer Downham, director of individual giving at the zoo. The Twin Cities German Immersion School is a public charter school sponsored by the Germanic-American Institute. Founded in 2005, the school moved into the former St. Andrew’s school in the Como Park neighborhood from University Avenue a year ago.
