You should have your courses in Schoology that match your course schedule, for most of you this will be the same schedule as in the Fall.  Your Spring Semester Schoology courses are scheduled to open by tomorrow morning for access.  Your "live" sessions will be provided using links in Schoology per teacher just as last semester.
I wish you the best as you engage and attend all of your classes and work towards the success you want to have in each class, specifically working towards graduation requirements.
If you have any questions about course schedules or Schoology access links, please email your teacher(s) or counselor for assistance.
Have a Great Last Evening of Break and I look forward to seeing you in 'Zooms' tomorrow...

Powerschool: Student Management (Grades, Attendance, Class Schedule, and Demographic Information)

Powerschool is where assignments will be updated for due dates, grading and completion.  This is the reporting tool to inform what, when, how performed with respect to attendance and class grades.  Once you create a Parent account you can link all of your children and you can turn on notifications to receive regular updates on your student’s progress and attendance.  Please contact our support staff with any questions, specific help or parent codes.  505-599-8880, 8am-12pm and 1pm-4pm Monday through Friday.


Schoology: Learning Management (Links, course content, assignments, classroom resources)

Schoology is where lessons will be presented with resources, links for course work, and zoom meeting times.  Any grades in Schoology are for progress and feedback purposes only and do not indicate a link to the actual course grade.  If you need your access code, please email your child’s 2nd Hour teacher.  These teachers should have these accessible as they were also sent to primary contacts through email earlier this year.

Please email Pam Edwards.  Mrs. Edwards is able to meet with students/parents to provide support and possible resources to assist. pedwards@fms.k12.nm.us  or 505-599-8880 ext. 3221.  Please leave a message if she does not answer and she will return your call at the earliest possibility.

Tips for Virtual Learning at Home:

Our current learning environment requires different support and teamwork for our students to succeed; remember that being active in your child’s education requires genuine time and conversations about learning spent with your child.


We encourage parents/guardians to do a weekly visit with your child.  The goal of the visit is to support your child and provide constructive feedback and suggestions.


Have a minimum 15-20 minutes  parent/student meeting to discuss their learning:

1.      Have your child open up Schoology and show you their previous and current weeks learning in each class.  

2.     Then have your child open up PowerSchool and review their attendance and grades in each class. 

3.     Provide a comment/s on what you notice your child is excelling and improving and a comment/s on where your child can improve or is struggling.

4.     Create a next step action plan and schedule the next meeting date on a calendar to celebrate success and continue the process above.
