The Yearbook Committee is starting to collect photos for the yearbook. This year, we are using Shutterfly Share Sites to collect and manage our photos.
Shutterfly makes it so simple to upload photos and even has an app that makes it even easier. To upload photos, please go to: bearvalleyyearbook.shutterfly.com to get started. You will have to login with an existing Shutterfly account, or signup for an account. It will then ask if you would like to request permission to join the site. This is a one-time step to keep the photos private. Once your access has been verified, you may login and start uploading!.
Please email email@example.com if you would like to join the yearbook committee or if you have any questions!
