Charms
  • Charms Log-In information and Instructions: 

    Each member of the MISD Band has a band student activity account through the band office. Governed by the Band Department, MISD, and U.I.L., this account is used for all student-related purchases and ordering transactions of band materials, instrument repair, and accessories, as well as band trips. Students and parents are responsible for keeping each student account “in the black” through band fundraising events or cash/check payments. According to U.I.L., money that is earned through band fundraisers cannot be paid directly to the student or parent. The money is issued to each individual student account to be used on that student’s behalf only. Money cannot be transferred from one student to another except where siblings are concerned. Seniors must reconcile their accounts prior to graduation. Upon a student’s graduation, positive remaining account balances will be transferred to sibling band members.

    For account deposits, please write checks to: Mabank Band.

    For special needs, payment plans, and account information, contact the band office. The band office oversees the student accounts, and receipts are written for each financial transaction. Periodically, the band office will mail account statements home to parents to help keep them informed of the status of their student’s account.

    Online Access:

    CHARMS – MISD Band Department currently uses an internet-based program called CHARMS. Charms allows the directors a way to organize student finances and other information. Along with the director advantages, this program provides parents the opportunity to review the band calendar, obtain current band information (including this handbook), and review their child’s student activity account.
