Holiday Social Event

Be on the lookout later this week for more information about a holiday social event. We are awaiting final approval, but are planning on outdoor movie showings on Thursday & Friday, December 10 & 11. If approved, the movies will start at 6pm both nights, and students will have to sign up for one night or the other to attend. Thursday's showing will be Elf and Friday's will be The Polar Express.

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!
