Pizza Hut Book-It!

Our class is participating in the BOOK IT! Program to encourage reading at home. Your child will receive a monthly reading calendar October-March. Each time kids read at home, they mark it on their calendars. At the end of the month kids bring their calendars back to school and they will receive a coupon for a FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. This coordinates perfectly with our weekly reading homework and rewards kids for being readers at home. Look for the first Book It calendar this week!
