Good Report Card



Good Report Card Freebies 2015

Now that the end of the school year is approaching I thought this would be a good time to reshare the current list of Good Report Card Freebies for kids who bring home good report cards!  This way you can use them as incentives to motivate your kids to finish the year odd strong!

Chuck E. Cheese - Chuck E. Cheese believes in the value of a good education. Choose from the Super Student Award or Graduation Certificate and receive FREE tokens for being a good student.

Krispy Kreme - Get a free original glazed donut for each A (up to 6 A’s).

Chick-fil-A – Bring in your all A’s and B’s report card and receive a FREE 8 pack nuggets! Call ahead to your location to see if they are participating

Pizza Hut – Each marking period, any child who has 3 A’s or the equivalent thereof, will receive one Personal Pan Pizza and a small soft drink or carton of milk by presenting his or her report card to the manager. This offer is good for Elementary and Middle School students. Dine-in only. Student must be present and the original report card must be presented. Available at participating locations.

students for every ‘A’ they receive on their final report card in any core subjects designed to ensure that we are an active, participating member of the community in which our store is located.

Cheryl’s Cookies – Get up to 3 FREE Cookies for A’s.

Cold Stone Creamery – Not on a national level, but the stores are individual owned & operated so the best thing to do would be to ask your local store as some have offered them in the past.

Bank Rewards – A reader sent in the tip to check with your local banks and credit unions as many of them offer money rewards for good grades as well.good report card freebies

Although I did contact each company to verify their participation again this year, I always suggest calling ahead to be sure that your area business is participating. The last thing you want is a disappointed child with a good report card right?

Also if you are a homeschooling family, check out this list of links to free printable report cards.

If you know of any more offers that should be added to the list feel free to email me krsawicki(at)yahoo(dot)com, or leave a comment and I’ll add it to the list for everyone to see!

All you need is a package of 12 plastic easter Eggs, an empty egg carton, and the printable Resurrection Eggs Scripture Verses below.

You can choose to add small trinkets to the eggs too if you think that will help your little ones understand the story better.

  • a small blade of grass to represent a palm branch at Jesus’ triumphal entry.
  • 3 quarters to represent the 30 pieces of silver that Judas Iscariot received
  • a cracker to represent the Last Supper
  • a tiny piece of paper rolled into a scroll to represent Jesus’ prayer in the garden
  • a piece of rope or yarn to represent the soldier’s whipping Jesus
  • a thorn to represent the crown of thorns
  • 2 small nails to represent the nails and the cross
  • Mini dice to represent the soldier’s casting lots for Jesus’ clothes
  • a toothpick with one end broken off to represent the spear piercing Jesus’ side
  • a piece thin white fabric to represent Joseph wrapping Jesus in clean linen cloth
  • a rock to represent the stone rolled in front of the tomb
  • the final egg is empty to represent the empty tomb.

If you don’t want to gather the trinkets or want a less expensive version, you can just use the FREE Resurrection Eggs Printable trinkets instead.

Using a permanent marker, number each of the 12 plastic eggs 1-12 and fill each egg with the correct scripture and trinkets.

This is a great way to share the Resurrection Story with even your littlest ones.

I also think this is a great Printable Resurrection Egg idea too!
