Books and Bundt Cakes (Nothing Bundt Cake, North Brunswick)
The North Brunswick Nothing Bundt Cake store has a reading incentive program for students. While the reading tracker says it is to be completed within a month, the store noted that it can be done over a longer period of time.
Here's what you need to know:
- The program runs all year round.
- A student must show up with the printed tracker showing that they have completed 400 minutes of reading, to receive a free Bundt cake.
- The tracker file can be reprinted for kids to continue reading and keep winning (Bundtlets) !
If you would like a hard copy of the tracker, please contact your child's teacher.
