The Conant Band program purchased an application called 'Charms Office', which can track student and parent information, fundraisers and student accounts, event calendars, practice logs, send parent communications and more.
Families now have access to more student account details in a secure and easy to use format. Mrs. Roder Manson sent an email with instructions, titled 'Charms Office Setup', to all families on October 23, 2015 and repeated on December 18, 2015.
Parent instructions included in the emails are also attached below.
Please contact Mrs. Roder Manson if you have questions regarding your Charms account.
The band club student accounts represent the amount the student has accumulated through various fundraisers, and is available to use on band related expenses. A percentage of the students' fundraising sales gets added to their accounts.
Students accounts can only be used to pay for a student’s band related expenses such as uniform costs, trip payments, private band lessons, t-shirts and senior banquet tickets. Please coordinate with Mr. Moorhouse to use a student account to pay for private lessons. With sufficient funds in the account and Mr Moorhouse's approval, the CBPC treasurer will write a check directly to the instructor.
After a student's last year in band, the ending balance may be rolled over to a sibling in the band. It can also be rolled over to a sibling that is in the 7th or 8th grade the year following the older sibling's departure - if that younger sibling joins the band when he/she enters Conant. Parents must notify the Conant Band Parents Club prior to the band member's departure in order to roll over the ending balance to a sibling.
We are not able to write a check to a student for any unused balance, as the students were selling items under the pretense that it was a Conant band club fundraiser. If you have any questions about student accounts, please contact Laurie Zawadzki at email@example.com
