"It’s wonderful to be able to give back to local communities and reward those students on their success. We look forward to continuing the Report Card A program for many years to come."
Glenview, IL (PRWEB) May 28, 2015
Throughout June, students from Kindergarten to College can earn movie or game rentals at Family Video stores for each final “A” or (equivalent mark) they achieve in a core subject. The company expects to give away over one million movie and game rentals this June. Additionally, all Family Video affiliated Marcos’s Pizza locations, will award a small 1 topping pizza; one per student.
“Report Card A” started as a local promotion by Charlie Hoogland, the company’s founder, in Springfield, IL over 30 years ago. The program has now expanded to over 770 movie and game rental stores and 100 selective Marco’s Pizza restaurants located in 19 states and Canada.
Although the scale of the program has grown, the purpose behind it remains the same. Reward the students who put in the time and effort to achieve success in the classroom.
“Having kids of my own in school and watching them get excited about receiving an ‘A’ makes me realize how important our “Report Card ‘A’” Program is because I believe that academic excellence is something to be celebrated,” said Keith Hoogland, Family Video President. “It’s wonderful to be able to give back to local communities and reward those students on their success. We look forward to continuing the Report Card A program for many years to come.”
Family Video is also proud to celebrate the role that teachers play in the education of our nation’s young people. As a thank you to the people who dedicate their professional lives to students, teachers were awarded a movie or game rental at Family Video locations on May 6th.
