Pizza Hut Book It Program

Your child can earn FREE pizza!!

We are participating in Pizza Hut's Book It program. Here is how it works: Each student who reads a minimum of 500 minutes per month will receive a coupon for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! It is that simple. I will keep up with the minutes using our regular reading logs that are due on Fridays. This program runs from October through March.

Reminder

Reading logs are due every Friday. Your chid is expected to read a minimum of 100 minutes at home each week.
