BOOK IT!® program includes Corpus Christi principal
Corpus Christi School Principal Martha Craig will spend the day reading on Nov. 5 as part of the BOOK IT!® Program organized by Pizza Hut® to celebrate National Young Readers Week, which is Nov. 5-9.
Beginning at 7:30 a.m. and continuing until 2:15 p.m., Craig will read in all of the Corpus Christi classrooms; on the playground; in front of school; on the intercom; and in the cafeteria.
Pizza Hut® and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress co-founded the program to raise awareness for the importance of literacy and generate a passion for reading among young people. One lucky principal will win Kate DiCamillo books for their entire school. Each K-6 grade student in the winner’s school will go home with their very own new book just in time for winter break.
