Book-It Information

Book-It season has begun.  Each month,  (Oct.-March) a calendar will be sent home with your child.  This is optional homework to record reading that is done at home.  This can be your child reading to you or you reading to him/her.  At the end of the month, your child can turn in the calendar for a Pizza Hut coupon.  Pizza Hut would like for me to inform you that the coupon is good for pick up only and the child must be present, as well as 1 coupon per child per day.  You are not allowed to bring 6 coupons with the same child’s name on it.

Thank you!  Happy Reading!
