Munster Band Backer Charms Account Administration

 Every student in the Munster High School Band, Marching Band, and Color Guard has an account in the “Charms” system. The Munster Band Backers use these individual Charms accounts to track band-related expenses incurred, payments received and fundraising dollars credited.  See the Charms tab for more information about how the Charms system is used, how to access it, and how to obtain login information.

Use the link below to access the Charms calendar for the fall practice schedule, competition schedule, Band Backers meeting dates, and other upcoming events.  Select "Enter/Login" from the top right corner, select "Parents/Students/Members", and enter the school code "munsterhsband."
