School-wide Subscriptions

BookFlix: subscription renewed. You can access it by clicking here. Username: suamico Password: bookflix --- TrueFlix subscription was NOT renewed

Moby Max: building-wide subscription renewed. This website has math, vocabulary and (new) writing activities for students. In the future, I will provide you with more information about how to access your accounts.

SpellingCity.com: We will be purchasing a building license for www.spellingcity.com. This website provides very well-organized spelling activities that can be used on the computer or iPad. Stay tuned for more information as we haven't actually ordered it as of this moment.

Transformers Technology Committee

This summer, Melanie Nyquist, April White, Jodi Prien, Amy LaRonge and Ryan Welnetz received training to support the implementation of technology at Suamico. This group meets every Friday morning to put together a comprehensive plan for training / implementation of technology.

Grades K and 1 = Melanie

Grades 2 and 3 = April

Grade 4 and SPED = Lynn Bortz

Specialists = Ryan

Amy LaRonge and Lani Novak can provide support as needed.

Texting

(THANK YOU TO THOSE OF YOU WHO RESPONDED...PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP IF YOU ARE OK WITH THIS TYPE OF COMMUNICATION)

Every person has his/her own preferences. When it comes to my phone, I prefer to have important information texted to me as opposed to e-mail. If you have to get information to me quickly, feel free to send a text (or iMessage through your iPhone / iPad) to my cell number at 920-544-6142 OR through iMessage at ryanweln@hssd.k12.wi.us.


On that same note, can I have your cell phone number in my phone? If so, please e-mail (or text or iMessage) me your cell phone number and I will text or iMessage you if I have something important to share. I will only use this sparingly. I have noticed that I tend to get quicker responses to important items when I text teachers. Please let me know your preference!


Thanks, Ryan
