PTA Message

Dear Mills Families,

This Year Only Happens Once!! What better way to capture the year than with a yearbook. You may still reserve your copy today at balfour.com while supplies last. The best way to capture all of the fun is with pictures. Send in your photos by March 3rd to Yearbook Committee using the guidelines below.

 

  • On an Android or iPhone device, search for Balfour Image Share in your app marketplace and download the app. On a PC or other devices, point your web browser to images.balfour.com to upload photos.
  • Enter our project number 724207 and password yearbook
  • Images should be in JPEG & PNG format, RGB. Maximum file size is 20MB per image.

 

There are a limited number of Shout-outs and 5th Grade Dedications so submit those online too, so get them while they last (deadline February 28th).
