PANATHENAEA

Panathenaea Is Friday!

This Friday, February 6 is Panathenaea! Tickets are still available - $10 each (kids 5 and under are free with paying adult)! Either from your student, or you can contact Mr. Lobaugh at bowiechoir@gmail.com, and we will make arrangements. We would like to have most tickets sold by Monday, so this is your last weekend!


Decorations, and food are all coming along well, but we still need your help! If you did not get the email sent out yesterday, I have linked to it below. Please look and help!

CHARMS and REMIND101

CHARMS

please Please PLEASE go to www.charmsoffice.com and double check that you're personal information is correct. We have many events coming up this semester, and our main source of contact with you is via email that we get from Charms. Below is a refresher on how to access Charms. This is also located on the Bowie Choir website HERE.


To access CHARMS, go to:

  1. www.charmsoffice.com
  2. Enter
  3. Parents/Students/Members
  4. Your school code is: jbowiehschoir
  5. Student Area Password: your student’s school ID #
  6. Once you have entered the site, please click on “Personal Info” and update any information. You can also stay updated on many other important informational items such as volunteers, contacting teachers, fees and fines, assigned music, and uniform assignments.


REMIND

Remind (formerly Remind101) is a text and app based service that allows teachers to send out immediate reminders and updates via text message or the Remind app. The choir department has one main Remind account for sending out information to the entire choir department. For example: this past week, we were scheduled to have the choir yearbook pictures taken. I sent this information out on the day before and day of pictures, asking all students to bring their dresses or tuxes. I promise not to "spam" this account (I don't have time to send out texts that aren't useful!)


This is the account that every choir member and parent should be a part of. Please follow the directions below to sign up for Remind if you have not already. Note: if you are in Chorale, Volunteer Voices, or are a Choir Officer, you should check with Mr. Lobaugh for directions on how to sign up for a second Remind service.
