Baton Rouge, La — Delmont Elementary School received 500 books this month from the Pizza Hut "Book It" program in partnership with Volunteers in Public Schools’ EveryBody Reads program.
Pizza Hut employees recognized each student on the Principal's List (those who made all A’s in the first nine weeks) with a book, a gift certificate to Pizza Hut and a delicious cake.
In addition, the remaining books will be placed in Delmont Elementary’s library. Pizza Hut also provided additional restaurant gift certificates as incentives for the school’s Positive Behavior Interventions and Support program and treated the school’s faculty to a pizza lunch.
Principal Jill Saia joined the celebration.
