2020-2021 Schedule


    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: I do not use Google Classroom.


    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. 




    Logging in for synchronous meetings: The link can 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: Items that are due are clearly visible in the agenda, week, month, or learning target -- or in PowerSchool. If it is due, students are told verbally and via written directions (in the agenda and in the chat) during the synchronous meetings or in the agenda during asynchronous meetings.


    How to turn in assignments: Anything that is due will have a submission link in the agenda or in the learning target.


    How to turn in late work: complete the assignment and then complete a Please Complete My Late Work Form - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeL6ida0qi8NGMcR5SNYrV_H8pUHYo2cH_pyK4lhHbuGy2aRw/viewform?usp=sf_link


    How often do you update grades: I try to update grades twice a week -- during my prep period. If it is a busy week, it may happen only once.


    Updates on what’s missing: Use PowerSchool to see your grade and what is missing or has a low score. Please watch this 63 second video about how to understand grades:
