Pizza Box Portfolios Students keep their best work in a "Pizza Box Portfolio." Frodos Pizza donates pizza boxes for us to use in creating the portfolios. We fold the boxes inside out so students have a blank box to design. Portfolios are kept in the classroom until the end of the year, and then sent home so families can see the growth of their young writers!
