A total of 220 third graders from San Elizario ISD’s elementary schools received a free dictionary courtesy of Kirk Robison, Chairman of Pizza Properties, Inc. and owner and operator of El Paso’s Peter Piper Pizza restaurants.
For over a decade, Robison has donated dictionaries to third grade students from across the El Paso County. It is an annual tradition he enjoys doing each year.
“The distribution of dictionaries to students is one more component to the Partner in Education program that Peter Piper Pizza is proud to do for El Paso area kids,” Robison said.
“Peter Piper Pizza’s Partner in Education program is designed to help educators help our kids reach their dreams and the dictionaries are one more way we hope to make a difference in a child’s education.”
Alarcon Elementary Assistant Principal, Leticia De Santos, said the dictionaries will certainly come in handy for third graders.
“These dictionaries are a valuable tool that will help students in their studies both in the classroom and at home,” De Santos said.
“They will also help students enrich their vocabulary skills. We are always very appreciative of Mr. Robison’s donation year after year,” she added.
