To the PFA Education Fund!

Welcome to the Foothill Middle School PFA!
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.

    Konstella offers the following resources for parents:
    • Parent directory (you can find and contact other FMS parents via Konstella). 
    • Downloadable calendar that shows holidays, other school days off, PFA meeting dates/times, and other important FMS and PFA dates.
    • Donation page for the PFA Education Fund. You can make an online donation through the Konstella donation page. The suggested donation for this school year is $425.  Look here for more information on the important resources that are funded by the PFA Education Fund.  
    • Sign ups for various volunteer opportunities such as helping at a school event, or chaperoning a field trip. These opportunities will likely be few this year but we are hopeful that you will be able to help with some school activities in the not too distant future!

2019 - 2020 messages
Thank You to everyone that participated in PFA activities throughout the 2019-20 school year! A big Thank You also goes out to all of the people who put together the Promotion Parade for the 8th Graders and their families! That meant a lot to the 8th grade students who missed out on their end of the year activities this year. This school year will certainly be one to be remembered! 


On March 13, 2020, the School District Superintendent Dr. Robert Martinez announced that Foothill Middle School will be closed starting on March 17, 2020, and was later updated to continue through the end of the year. The closure is to prevent the possibility of exposure to Covid-19 Coronavirus. All events, such as concerts and plays, have been canceled for this year. The district has not set any guidelines yet for next year. Please be extra safe as we together live through this pandemic. We want to see you all back at school strong and healthy! 

Over the summer break, please consider supporting one of the places that have hosted Dine and Donate events for our school through the year. Round Table, Chipotle, Mod Pizza, Jacks, and many others came forward to help our school, it's our turn to help them in return during these tough times!

Please Donate To The PFA's Ed Fund!



Suggested Donation $425 per Student.
