Victoria among Texas schools to receive 50,000 dictionaries from Peter Piper Pizza

Victoria students are among the recipients of more than 50,000 free dictionaries that Peter Piper Pizzas are distributing across Texas.

The Partner in Education program gives free dictionaries to third graders in over 600 schools and more than 30 districts in the state.

Many schools plan to use the dictionaries to assist students with their STARR exams.

“It’s very important because we do get all these students to come in. For us it’s appreciation. Giving back to the community as much as we can. There’s times we get asked for a gift certificate. When schools do a raffle for an event, we give it to them. It’s an appreciation thing to us. It’s very important,” said Gabriel De Leon, General Manager, Peter Piper Pizza.
