Add Voicemail to a Google Site

SpeakPipe is a tool that allows you to collect voicemail messages through your website or blog. With SpeakPipe installed on your blog anyone can click on the "send voicemail" button and leave a message for you. You can then either listen to the message or read a transcript of the message in your SpeakPipe account. Learn more here, and check out the video below to see how it works. I also added it to my Tech Help Site.
How to Receive Voicemail Through Your Website

Student Remote

Have you noticed the Student Portal on the main MRHS website? The link takes them to, and apps are added by grade level. Below you can see below what apps students in grades 6-12 can see on the Student Portal.

Submit a Book Review--only MRHS peeps can see them!

Hey, Mustangs! Read any good books lately or have a favorite that everyone should read? Submit a book review to Flipgrid here:, or scan the QR code in your Flipgrid app. Help someone find their next favorite! Need help with Flipgrid? Shoot Mrs. LaRue an email, or she can video chat w/you, too. This would be a cool activity to do with great would it be to have a whole page of reveiws from students and staff in one place? My example is below, but the rest won't be on YouTube...just Flipgrid (shared on the library website for all to see).

Online Help for Staff and Students

I've added info to the Link page on the MRHS Website. These are both "Featured Links" on the MRHS Links site. If you think of something students may need, please let me know, and I'll add it to the student page.
