CHARMS and Student Accounts!!!

Speaking of accounts, we use charms for our bookkeeping and student data management. You can check out your child's account by clicking on the link below!

The school code is eastlimestoneband

It's all one word. The password should be your student's last name and first initial with no spaces. Yell if you need help!

When reading the statement, if you have a negative sign by the dollar amount it means that is how much you owe. Keep an eye out and feel free to ask questions. I do not have an accounting degree!!! I try my best but sometimes make mistakes.

Instrument Cleaning Sheets!

Just follow the link and keep scrolling until you find your instrument. It's always a great time to clean instruments!

Classroom Info!

We have sent several notes home to parents but just in case your kiddo has forgotten it, left it at school, lost, fed it to the dog, didn't get it (my personal fav), or whatever else, we will post it here from now on.


Again, we have sent this home a few times but just in case,...

$20 Beginner Band fee - includes the book and classroom supplies

$100 School Instrument Rental fee - This is only if you use a school instrument. This pays for normal wear and tear on the instrument as well as saving for additional instruments.

$50 Stick Bag Fee - This is only for percussionists. They get a stick bag, two sets of mallets and a pair of sticks. This is theirs forever!

$100 percussion fee - This is for all percussionists. Instead of parents purchasing instruments, they pay a $100 fee each year. This pays for up keep as well as a portion going to new instruments. This way, percussionists get to play all of the percussion instruments.

We were trying to do a beginner band shirt but that fell through. If you have paid that money, it will be in your student account!
