CHARMS/Band Fees Information
Charms is a website that the band uses to post fees and keep track of Charms Points. Charms Points may be earned through various fundraisers (Panther Games, Knights Games, etc.) and can be used to pay for band fees.

Click "Enter Charms"
The "Initial Student Area Password" is the first three letters of the first name and the first three letters of the last name. Example: John Smith's student area password would be JohSmi. The capital letters are required.
The system will prompt you to change the password.
