Order a Yearbook!

It’s that time! Order your child’s yearbook today using the link for Balfour!  The 2020-21 school yearbook is a special one as the front and back cover have been designed by our very own Mitchell Road Elementary students. Make sure you purchase this special keepsake for your child.

All yearbooks will be shipped to the school. If your child is attending school in person, their yearbook will be sent home with them. If your child is a virtual student, you may pick up their yearbook in the front office.  *We will let you know when yearbooks arrive and are ready for pick up*
