All students in the music program have an account in Charms.

Charms is the online recordkeeping program that assists us in keeping track of all of your Fundraising Credits, as well as the primary source of communication information (emails/phone numbers) for the Music Foundation.

ALL Students AND ONE Parent/Guardian must log into Charms, verify their data, CREATE an E-Signature, read the Online Music Handbook and "digitally sign" that they have read/agreed to the policies within.

Our Music Foundation provides a great deal of support to the amazing Directors who teach our talented students and provides opportunities for the students to earn money that is applied to their account for the spring trip. In order to fill in the monetary gaps, the Music Foundation holds a number of fundraisers, but they can't happen without the help of our music community.
