SUMMER STREET SCHOOL PTO is thrilled to announce a new fundraising opportunity with Lifetouch and Shutterfly. We’ve created a custom online storefront where you can shop the extensive Shutterfly collection of holiday cards, photo books, gifts, premium stationery, keepsakes, home décor and so much more—and for every purchase made, Shutterfly will donate 8% to our organization. AND, you can shop all year long, not just during the holidays!
