Tonight, how good grades can pay off when it comes to entertaining and feeding your kids over summer break.
Clerk says: What can I get for you today?
When the weather is warm...
There's nothing like a cold, sweet treat.
And Hume Fogg sophomore Gloria Lewis can get that and more because she studies hard.
Lewis / Hume Fogg student says: I'm about to go view my grades So you
go under grades and those (show close up of her grades) are all my
grades for the year.

I feel like I've accomplished something
Ricky Payne / Baskin Robbins
present their report card to the clerk at the counter. Then they get a
free scoop of ice cream for doing hard work. 19:18:55
a lot of chains have the same offer across the country... Baskin
Robbins stores are independently owned so the freebie may vary from
store to store
Ricky says: We encourage them to do as well as
they're doing so they can get free icecream next time. And they always
say I'll be back..
At Pizza Hut, for example, good grades get you a personal pan pizza and a drink.
Justice Stores offer $5 off your purchase.
Krispy Kreme gives one doughnut for every A. Depending on the store... that's up to 6 doughnuts per report card.
At Chick fil a... it's an 8 pack of nuggets or a free icecream cone.

I think that is so great because our kids need someone to say, 'hey I appreciate what you do'
Attractions like Chuck E Cheese offer 15 game tokens for good grades.
Emily Hartzell / Hume Fogg student
I knew about the Baskin Robbins one not about the other ones though
That's true... most stores don't advertise ----that good grades made....
equals dollars saved. So pack your report card... and don't forget to ask.
