The Chapin Band uses a program called Charms Office to manage many aspects of the band program. This program is how we keep in touch with all members, parents, and supporters. We also use this program to manage the student financial reports. Once the school year starts, each student will be asked to download the Charms Office App on their phone or ipad. This app will be used to record playing test throughout the year. Please make sure we have the most up to date information in this system Below are instructions for signing in to Charms.
