CHARMS and the Music Handbook

Have YOU signed into CHARMS yet??

THIS IS A GRADED ASSIGNMENT FOR YOUR STUDENT and will be checked via Charms.

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.

It does appear that most new logins for the school year are requiring a password reset, please email Joy Altenburg @ joyaltenburg@verizon.net. You can also email mrhsmf@gmail.com and Mrs. Altenburg will reply to you directly.

Support MRHS Boosters!

MRHS Boosters supports music and all activities at Marriotts Ridge.  Please help the Boosters by becoming a member and supporting their fundraisers!


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.
