Elementary Continues BOOK IT! Program

by Katie Vogt


Every year the Pierce elementary kids participate in the BOOK IT! reading program to earn free pizzas from Pizza Hut. According to the National Book It program by Pizza Hut, “BOOK IT! motivates children to read by rewarding their reading accomplishments with praise, recognition and pizza. The program is simple, flexible, fun and free to use in your classroom! BOOK IT! was created in 1984 and currently reaches more than 14 million students and 37,000 K-6 grade schools annually.” 

The program will last from October until March of the next year, giving young readers at the elementary five monthly opportunities to win a pizza. “We use it as an incentive for kids to read outside of school, where here (at school) they think it’s part of their job, and at home, they do it more for fun,” says third grade teacher, Kristie Bruening. 

If you have a student in grades K-6, ask them about their reading goals, and help them to earn a free pizza.
