Lovejoy Orchestra Tour to Washington D.C. April 20-23, 2017

Final Trip Payment is due today!

Final Trip Payment is due on March 9th- $250.

Here are instructions on how to use the online payment system!

The online payment system for the Orchestra Spring Trip is finally available. I know that most everyone sent checks for the first payment, however you may still use the online system for future payments.

Below are the instructions on how to access it. It is a little clumsy since it is also attached to our Charms accounts.

Here is the Link:

When the link opens click on the Washington D.C. Orchestra Trip button.

In the next window (Charms parent/member/student area)

Enter lovejoyorch in the school code field.

In the next window enter your student's charms password. It should be their student ID ( unless you have changed it)

The next window ask for you to change your password, you do not have to change it. Click on the $ tap at the top of the window and it will take you to the Student Financial Statement window.

In the Student Financial Statement window you will click on the select trip drop down menu and select Washington DC. Click on make payment

In the next window you will enter the amount of the payment you wish to make and click on start payment.

The next window will show the amount of the payment and the trip for which it will be made. Click on go to checkout and follow the instructions to make payment.

Please let me know if you have any difficulties with this process.
