Band Fees and charms info
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 (Panthers, Sam’s Cards, etc.) that can be used to pay for band fees. Rising 9th and 10th grade students will also see an Accessory Fee for show shoes and section specific items (gloves, mallets, etc.)
To access Charms for the first time:
Go to the Charms website (https://www.charmsoffice.com/).
Click Login in the upper right corner.
Choose the Parent/Students/Members tab

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.

Sam's Carwash Fundraiser
Camille will be outside the Band room on the dates listed below, to hand out carwash cards/receive money from cards sold. You pay $20 for a card, and it is loaded with $25 to spend at Sam's Carwash. You'll get $5 free, and the Band gets $10 in funds from each card sold. Students will also receive 2.5 charms points for every card they sell, which means $5 of the $10 goes into your student's personal account to be used to pay Band fees. You can take cards to sell to your friends and family also, you'll just be responsible for turning in the money for the cards you sell, or return the cards you do not sell. We can only get 200 cards at a time, so please return unsold cards as soon as you know you're done selling.
9/2 5:30-6:30 pm
9/9 5:30-6:30 pm
9/16 5:30-6:30 pm
9/27 5:30-6:30 pm (all money and any unsold cards are due at this time)
If you have any questions, please contact Camille at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-466-1984.
