Charms is software that will keep track of all our events on a live, interactive on-line calendar - available to all students, members, and adults by group. Teachers are able to send mass e-mails, record and blast phone messages and send free text messages. We are able to upload handouts, sound files, short videos, assignments, audition materials, maps, pictures and more for students, members, and parents to access 24/7, either on their computers or on their mobile devices.
Students can keep practice logs online, record and upload playing tests, and track their own grades. Parents can track inventory assignments, monitor attendance, and track merits or demerits earned. Charms includes an advanced web store where the Boosters can run their own sales without needing additional software.
Today, Charms is used by over 7000 organizations world-wide. They are the clear leader in providing this type of service. Charms is written for the Web - any computer, or mobile device with an internet connection can access Charms from anywhere in the world.
They do not sell advertising on Charms. They don't use web trackers or other intrusive software, and they don't sell our usage statistics. Everything is private and secure.
Recently, we have been doing several IBA (Individual Bank Account) fundraisers for your child to raise money toward the Orlando trip or toward any Music Department charge (school-owned instrument rental fees, reeds, contest fees, etc.). You have the ability to track the amount of money your student has in their IBA account through the Charms program.
I have attached a sheet to get you started using the program. Please sign in to your child's account (login is MokenaMusic - password is last name and first initial - all lower case) and update the information on that page. The more up-to-date your information is, the easier it is for us to contact you with important information. You can add parent information, email addresses, phone numbers, etc.
This is the main way that the directors will communicate with you. Please take a few minutes to make sure your information is correct.
