It sure pays to do well in school.

About 115 Lincoln Elementary School students who scored proficient or better on the California Standardized Test were invited last week to a day of fun at the Chevron Richmond refinery.

About 20 Chevron Richmond employees showed the students from third through sixth grades a well-deserved good time.

The day started off with a chemistry magic show, which the students “absolutely loved,” said Leah Casey, a community engagement specialist for Chevron Richmond.

The day ended with a barbecue lunch.

Several volunteers called the event an absolute blast. Below are pictures to prove it:
