Last day to purchase Domino’s Slice the Price of Pizza cards is Tuesday. Order now!

Posted Feb 11, 2019 | Category: News

The PTO is selling Slice the Price of Pizza cards from Domino’s for $10 each.  This fundraiser will run from January 29th – February 12th.



  • Every time you purchase a large pizza at Domino’s, you will receive a large pizza FREE!  No limit on toppings or quantity of large pizzas per order.  For example: buy 10 pizzas and get 10 more pizzas FREE!
  • The cost of the card is just $10, which is less than the price of a large pizza, so if you use the card just one time, it more than pays for itself!
  • Use the card as many times as you would like until the card expires on 12/31/19.
  • Share this great deal with family and friends and help support the Hauser PTO.
  • The Slice the Price Card is honored at all Domino’s locations in Cook County.  There are several other participating locations throughout IL and the US.  Check online for a listing of all locations included in the promotion.  slicethepricecard.com/

Order forms will be coming home with your child tomorrow.  You may return the order form to the school office with cash or check payment by February 12th.  If you would like to order on-line, click on the link below.

Hauser Junior High Library Resource Center

Love to shop?  Want to help your school?  Hauser’s PTO makes it easy to do both at its annual Scholastic book fair.

Yes, you can purchase books on Amazon, but does Amazon give back up to 55% of its sales to benefit Hauser? Last year over a thousand dollars’ worth of books was purchased for our library and classroom libraries with your support.

Your child will have the opportunity to shop with his or her ELA class that week, so check out the flier of titles that is in their backpack, and please send money on their assigned shopping day!   OR, feel free to shop while your child is in school too, we are open all day!  Come choose a book for your child or favorite teacher.  All book purchases count towards the annual classroom pizza party contest!

Books for the whole family are available through our online fair (high school, adult, little kids), so think ahead and purchase that gift or book for spring break. All online sales count too!


If you have any questions contact:  Tracey Bohrer @ tjgett@yahoo.com
