More than 60 students from Lincoln Elementary School will walk onto a high school campus in the fall.
While regular 8th grade promotion ceremonies have been sidelined until potentially later this summer, students from Lincoln lined up along Powers Avenue Tuesday morning for a drive-thru graduation ceremony to receive their promotion certificates and say goodbye to the school that has been their home for nine years.
Even though the regular ceremony has been postponed, the school still went out of its way to honor the students who earned special achievements during their 8th grade year. Receiving honor cords for finishing with a grade point average from 3.5 to 3.99 were Alana Abello, David Carrillo, Vanessa Guzman Munoz, Reyna Magana Perez, Stephanie Montes De Oca, Daisy Roman, Farah Jane Williams, and Kaitlyn Zatek.
Distinguished scholars from Lincoln Elementary with a 4.0 grade point average were Christian Avila, Amy Beltran Flores, Veronica Desantos Ibarra, Jada Ikharo, Cedrick Maglinao, Amy Matias Perez, and Melisa Medina.
Both Vanessa Guzman Munoz and Melisa Medina received the Manteca Unified School District Character Counts Award, and the following students received outstanding student awards in their respective disciplines: Amy Matias Perez (Robert Morgan Science Award), Cedrick Nino Maglinao (English Language Arts Award), Kaitlyn Zatek (Social Science Award), Jasmine Bugarin (Mathematics Award), James Reed (Physical Education Award), Amy Beltran Flores, Veronica Desantos Ibarra, and Cristina Solis (Music Award), Jada Ikharo and Micah Crawford-Malone (ACORN Athlete of the Year). Mackenzie Sandoval and Isac Tacilauskas received awards for being Most Persevering.
Scheduled to give an address to the students about their years together was Melisa Medina, while Cedrick Maglinao was going to address the Class of 2020. Jada Ikharo was scheduled to speak to the future of the Lincoln Elementary Class of 2020.
