Konstella:  The PFA provides a communication tool for ALL parents called Konstella.

Join Konstella here. 

Konstella is the only official platform used by the PFA for communications. It is

maintained by the PFA and offers information that is PFA focused such as:

(depending on each parent’s specified account settings)

PFA meeting dates/times, Dine & Donate fundraising events, and other

important FMS and PFA dates and events.

online donation directly through the Konstella donation page.

appreciation events or student social events.

promotion, etc


ParentSquare: PLEASE NOTE: Parent Square is used for communications by the Teachers/Administration/School District ONLY

The PFA has no ability to create and send messages through this platform. For this reason, the PFA encourages parents to join Konstella from the beginning of 6th grade (with reminders throughout each year) since this is something parents need to initiate on their own. Emails are not provided from elementary schools, Foothill administration or the district to be automatically fed into Konstella nor do elementary school Konstella accounts automatically roll over into middle school Konstella accounts. Likewise, please note that middle school Konstella accounts DO NOT automatically feed into high school accounts. *8th grade families will need to join Northgate's Konstella account when transitioning to 9th grade.

To the PFA Education Fund!

The Foothill Middle School Parent Faculty Association (FMS PFA) is a parent-led organization that works closely with Principal Vaiana and the teachers and administrators to provide information for parents, coordinate some student activities, and raise money by way of donations to the PFA Education Fund. The Education Fund's purpose is to supplement funding from MDUSD and the State of California to pay for vital resources for our students. As a parent at FMS, you are automatically a member of the Foothill PFA!

The information shared on this website is in addition to the official Foothill Middle School website. For official school information and to contact administrators and teachers at FMS, please go to the FMS website.
