MJHS Band Newsletter


Moody Band Upcoming Events 2014

 

Charms Band Management System: Our band program has adopted the use of a band management system called Charms Office. This online program will allow you to keep tabs on your student’s band uniform, band account, instrument inventory, music, upcoming events, and much more. I will begin posting more information in the coming days and weeks through the Charms system. Please go to www.charmsoffice.com, enter the Login area, enter MoodyBand, and enter your student’s ID. You may obtain this by emailing me at brad.sargent@sccboe.org with “Charms” in the subject line. Please fill in as much information as possible after you’ve logged into the system.

 

Cookie Dough Sale: Brochures have been sent home with students for the cookie dough sale fundraiser. 50% of profits go into individual student accounts, and 50% of profits go toward the band booster general fund for band operating expenses. Paid orders are due at the band room by October 28. Order distribution is scheduled to begin on November 18. All orders should be distributed before Thanksgiving break.

 

In-School Concert: Want to know what a typical day in the band room is like? Do you hear your student practicing at home and wonder how we put it all together in a class period and make it sound like music? Come out to our in-school concert during Beginner Band and Intermediate Band to hear just how we do it. Come to the band room on Thursday, November 6 during your student’s band time to find out! (beginners 2nd period, 8:45-9:45; intermediates 3rd period, 9:45-10:45). Please sign in at the MJHS office when you arrive.

 

Intermediate Band Side-by-Side with the MHS marching band: Moody HS vs. Lincoln HS home football game, Friday, October 24. Intermediate band members will have a chance to play side-by-side with our high school marching band, including our pre-game march from the band room, stand tunes during the game, and our return to the band room at the end of the evening. The uniform for intermediate members who are not already marching members: Moody Band polo shirt, jeans, sneakers.

Christmas Concert: Includes Beginner, Intermediate, and High School bands. The date of the event has been rescheduled and will now take place on Tuesday, December 16 at 7:00 pm in the MHS gym. Admission is the donation of a new, unwrapped toy to benefit the Moody Fire Department’s toy drive. Volunteers are needed to help chaperone, hand out programs, and to deliver donations at the conclusion of the concert. Sign up to help on the interactive calendar at www.charmsoffice.com by using MoodyBand and your student ID at the login area.

Charms Office Instructions

Dear Parents and Students:

I'm excited to announce our adoption of an online, whole band management system called Charms Office. Although I'm still working to set up the system, build an interactive calendar, and set up payment options for fees and trips, parents and students will eventually be able to use the site as a one-stop shop to pay band fees, purchase supplies, pay for trips, check student account balances, volunteer to help with events, manage uniforms, music needs, instrument inventory, view an interactive online band calendar, and even complete forms electronically.

I ask that you take a few minutes to log into the system to set up your account as soon as possible, but no later than October 15th. Please supply as much information as possible, including parent and emergency contact info.

Instructions:
1. To get started, e-mail me at brad.sargent@sccboe.org with "Charms" in the subject line to get your student ID number. I have created a temporary ID number for every student in our program. After you have logged in, you can change your student ID to a secure password of your choice.

2. Go to www.charmsoffice.com and click the Login icon at the top right to login as a student or parent member.

3. Enter the school code MoodyBand in the parent-student section of the website. This is case-sensitive, so please type the phrase exactly as it appears here.

4. View your personal information by entering your student ID number (see #1 above).

5. Go to "update info" and "add adult" to enter or update parent information on your student, including emergency contact numbers, addresses, etc.

6. When you are finished entering information, click "update" and you're finished.

7. While you're in the program, please browse the features and familiarize yourself with them. I think you'll be pleased with the enhanced communication the program will allow for our parents and students.

Technical Support: If you need help while in the program, first click the Help(?) icon on any screen. Contact Support at charmssupport@charmsmusic.com. If the live support button is blinking, support staff is online to help with any difficulty in real time.
