Castro's readers win again

Students logged more summer reading than any other district school

Once again, students from Castro School won the Mountain View Whisman School District's summer reading challenge -- which pits district schools against each other in a competition to see which school's students can read the most books over the course of the summer.

In keeping with tradition, Castro's new Principal Terri Lambert and assistant principal and Marcela Simoes deCarvalho donned costumes and addressed the students at a rally in celebration of the victory.

In years past, Castro's former principal, Judy Crates, dressed as a gorilla suit and a giant chicken. This year, Lambert dressed as a character from the children's book "Henry & The Buccaneer Bunnies" and deCarvalho dressed as the title character from "The Paper Bag Princess."

The school's walkathon was held on the same day, and students dressed in a rainbow of shirts with different color for each grade, making for a very colorful celebration.
