North Country Elementary arrived at the Zoo this morning with smiles on their faces. Why are they smiling? Well, the obvious reason is they are at the Zoo. But that’s not why. These kids have been busy helping our giraffes a penny at a time! This group has been busy collecting their change to help the giraffes get a new barn. I must say they were successful. I was presented with a heavy container that held $104.65! Way to go North Country Elementary! These kids should feel proud of what they have accomplished! North Country Elementary wants to challenge other schools to collect those pennies, nickels and dimes for the Sacramento Zoo’s Giraffes. A BIG THANK YOU to North Country Elementary!
