SAM uses Shutterfly to share and enjoy photos taken throughout the school year. Each class has their own page and it serves as a wonderful tool to collect memories, especially for the 8th grade video!

For any questions or concerns, or if you have not yet been added to your child’s Shutterfly class page, please email Kendyl at moc.l1555943324iamg@1555943324026ly1555943324dnek1555943324.&nbsp" >moc.l1555943324iamg@1555943324026ly1555943324dnek1555943324.
