    Where to go to find out what’s happening in Mr. Olsen’s class?


    My Folsom Middle School Teacher Website is the main point of contact for classes. This is the place where you’ll find answers to questions like: What we’re doing today? Where is the slide I saw in today’s class? What did I miss? 


    Click on your class period. The first thing you will see are the class-specific announcements. Click Agenda to see exactly what we're doing for the day.


    What about other technology?


    Google Classroom: In Mr. Olsen’s class, students submit assignments through Google Classroom. Google Classroom is used for collecting work. *To turn in your work, be sure to click submit.


    PowerSchool: FCUSD uses this platform for grades and attendance. Keep an eye on your grade by going to https://powerschool.fcusd.org/public/


    Microsoft Teams: In Mr. Olsen’s class, we use MS Teams for Synchronous Learning. Within MS Teams, I communicate with students via video and chat. Student can ask questions and participate in discussions by “raising a hand” or posting in the chat. 


    Questions? Need assistance? Please contact me at dolsen@fcusd.org or drop in during my office hour: T, W, Th, F 11:30-11:45. The link is on my FMS Teacher Website, left side.




    Logging in for synchronous meetings: The link is in my Google Classroom Stream. It can also be found by going to my teacher website and clicking your class period.


    Expectations during synchronous meetings: show up to the MS Teams meetings on time, follow along, participate, ask questions when needed (via chat or by raising a hand)


    Assignments: anything that is due is found in Google Classroom or PowerSchool. If it is due, students are told verbally and via written directions (on the slides) during the class meetings


    How to turn in assignments: submit assignments in Google Classroom


    How to turn in late work: complete the assignment in Google Classroom, then email me to let me know you've done it. I'll verify and update your grade ASAP.


    How often do you update grades: I update grades at least twice a week -- usually during my prep period. 


    Updates on what’s missing: in Google Classroom, click on the Classwork tab and then on a specific assignment. There will be a link to all the details. Or, you can use PowerSchool. Click on the assignment and there will be a link to more details.
