Students of Distinction – May 11, 2012

Cori Longchamps, 8th Grade


The only graduate who has attended Lincoln Street for all grades, K-8th and a 4.0 student taking top academic classes, Cori is persistent, responsible, reliable and independent.   A combination of both city and country, she is a talented artist and has taken tap and ballet classes for the past seven years, recently promoted to pointe class in ballet. Growing up on a ranch, she has raised a variety of animals, both small and large, which has inspired her to pursue a career as a veterinarian. “Cori and her family have made Lincoln Street School a better place to attend.”


Bailey Bean, 8th Grade


“You can’t be around Bailey without smiling.” She is not only a reliable, dependable, punctual, and responsible student, but also has a great personality and willingness to think-outside-the-box when it comes to problem solving. She has an uncanny ability to balance her rigorous academic schedule with her passion for rodeo.  This is Bailey’s 3rd consecutive year representing District 1 at the California High School Rodeo Association’s Jr. High State Finals.  She competes in all events and has earned the title All Around Cowgirl several times. “Bailey’s desire to succeed, matched with superb work ethics, will help her reach her goals.”

Rotary Delivers Dictionaries


The entire third grade class at Lincoln Street School gratefully accepted the gift of new dictionaries recently, donated by Will and Susan Murphy.  Dictionaries are donated each year to every third grader in Tehama County through a long-time program of the Red Bluff Rotary Club.

Mr. and Mrs. Murphy shared inspirational words and wisdom with the students as they presented them with their new dictionaries.  Tehama County Superintendent of Schools, Larry Champion, and Deputy Superintendent, Charles Allen, also assisted with the presentation.

“The Rotary Club dictionary donations are a highly anticipated event for third grade students,” said Lincoln Street School teacher, Dana Brent.   “Both students and staff greatly appreciate community partners, like the Rotary Club, who work together to promote learning and enrich the lives of our students.”

100th Day Celebration


Lincoln Street School students came together recently to celebrate their 100th day of school with fun and educational math activities.

During the celebration the youngest students built a paper pizza that was used to represent a tally chart and graph, while the older ones worked together on more advanced math problems.

Teacher Dana Brent enjoyed having all of the students working together, actively involved in the math activities. “It’s great to see the students so engaged in math that they continued working even into the lunch break,”  said Brent.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Tehama County Arts Council, Lincoln Street School students have been given the opportunity to learn about famous artists such as Picasso, Hokusai, DaVinci, and Seurat.

Students gather weekly for meaningful lessons on famous painters and their chosen techniques.  Through the grant, students have access to all of the materials and supplies they need to paint, draw, and construct their own works of art.
