Castro students are no chickens when it comes to books. They egged on Castro School Principal Judy Crates as she bucked convention on Monday, Oct. 29, dressed in a chicken suit. Crates cavorted to the delight her pupils, leading them in the chicken dance and handing out plastic eggs. Castro School, home of the district's dual immersion Spanish program, is on an upward trajectory, with rising test scores. Students competed against other Mountain View Whisman schools to read the most books over the summer break, and Castro won for the second year in a row. Last year, they earned a visit from Crates who delivered bananas while dressed as a gorilla.
