For any virtual students who were unable to come to last weekend's materials pickup, please plan to stop by the BACK of the school next Monday, November 9 between 4:30-6:30pm. You will need to turn in band forms and fall fee payments if you have not done so already. Forms and fee information can be found at the bottom of this Smore in case you missed it before.

We will have extra copies of the band forms available if needed on Monday as well.

Please come and pick up band t-shirts and new music that we will be recording for our holiday concert very soon!

You can check your student's Charms account by the end of the day tomorrow (Wednesday 11/4) for the most accurate form and fee submission info.

Fall Concert Success!

Thank you so much to those of you who tuned in last Thursday evening to watch the fall concert live with us on Google Meet. I truly appreciate the many kind messages and emails I have received since the concert and am so glad that you enjoyed it!

Helpful Info/Reminders

Charms Resolution

Log in to Charms using the school code hudsonsoundmachine and your student's password. Passwords for brand new students should be the student ID with 6 digits only. If you cannot get logged on, please contact Mrs. Becker. She has discovered a new way to reset passwords!

You can click the "finances" button and pay fall band fees using Paypal. If you have logged in and are paying band fees, but your student has a credit on their account, the easiest thing to do is to make a miscellaneous payment. You can specify what the payment is for since it will be for the remaining balance and not the entire Fall fee. Then you can "request a transfer" of that payment to go to the fall fees.

School-owned instrument fees will still be paid in Skyward this year. We are having a little trouble getting that set up correctly since this is a change from previous years. We made some headway last week and hope to be completely set up by the end of this week. Stay tuned for more info!
