Original post made on Nov 1, 2012

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.

There goes Crates again, hoggin' the spotlight. She has never taught my kids to read, the TEACHERS have!

They should have told the Castro students that there is also no chickens when it comes to drive throughs. Cluck cluck.

Before the spell check police correct me. I meant to spell it as 'drive-thru' not 'through'.

@C-f-h: Yes. With your correction it is much more funny and people don't think nearly as bad of you for trying to hijack the posts. Just think how hilarious it will be when you correct the phrase "there is also no chickens"
It will be GOLD!

Dear Parent -

Of course, Dr. Crates did not personally teach "your children" to read but she has provided the leadership needed at Castro for academic excellence. And, she is to be admired, not criticized, for being willing to "dress up" and inspire the students and staff!!!

It was a magical afternoon with incredible spirit by the whole school...teachers, students, and parents who came out to celebrate a love of reading for the kids and academic performance continuing on the rise. A rollicking round of the Chicken Dance with 600 celebrating friends was "good for the soul!" :)

@Banyon - see, I knew the grammar police would show up. Thanks for not disappointing me.
