The Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Program is open to homeschoolers! Here is the link to enroll: http://www.bookitprogram.com/Enrollment/homeschool.asp The program materials are first come, first serve so I suggest enrolling soon. The official deadline is September 1 of the upcoming school year but it's really until they run out of supplies.
