Hello students and parents! New school year means new and great things for the band program! We just created a Charms Office account for the band program and we are extremely excited about it!
What is Charms?
Charms is a cloud-based management system designed to help a band program/organization be more productive. It can be accessed through any internet-connected device allowing 24/7 capability to do whatever needs to be done, from anywhere at any time. Here is a short list of what Charms has to offer:
- Calendar of events (this can sync with your current calendar digitally)
- Real-time student data (you can update information yourself anytime)
- Email/text communications
- Recorded assessment, grades, attendance
- Assessment history and portfolio
- Document/handout sharing
- Mobile App for easy access (Charms Blue – free!)
The PJHE Band program would like to go more “green” this year and give out less handouts during school. With Charms, we are able to upload any handout and blank forms for you to print at home or work, saving the school time and money (less $$ on paper means more $$ on the more important stuff!). Instead of using several different systems to communicate, record and more (Skyward, Remind101, school band website calendar, etc.), it is all now in one place! Many schools across the country have adapted Charms, including our very own Pearland High School band program!
Under the charms tab you will find a PDF file that will help show you how to log in to your student’s account and calendar. Please download the mobile app called Charms Blue on your mobile device. This will be something we require every student to download when the school year starts. We are super excited about Charms and for the new school year! Let the fun and hard work begin.
If you have any questions about Charms and how to access specific things on the website and/or Charms Blue app, please email send an email to Mr. Rambusch at email@example.com.
