Lincoln Elementary School, Tulare City School District
First-grade staff says, "Denise is a true Lincoln Lion who proudly represents our school. She always asks permission before she does something that she's not certain about, just to make sure it's the right thing to do. She shows respect by not interrupting the teacher and waits for her turn politely. Denise is a good friend to everyone and we're grateful to have her in our class this year."
