Castro Elementary has its first three millionaires through the Accelerated Reader program, Renaissance Place. Any time a student reads and tests on a book, the program keeps a total count of words read. Once a student reads one million words, they become part of the Millionaires Club at Castro Elementary. As a reward for achieving this lucrative goal, students get their picture on the millionaire bulleting board, they receive a millionaire t-shirt to be worn on Fridays, they receive a trophy at the end of the year awards assembly, and they get to attend an end of the year celebration.
