      As of the fall of 2014, we are starting to use a new program to help with paperwork and ease of communication.

      Charms Office Assistant

      This is a program created for band directors and other music teachers and is used around the country.

      This year, my goals for using this program include:

      1) student/parent information for ease of creating mailing labels and email lists

      2) student account information accessible online

      3) calendar and parent volunteer sign-ups online

      Let's Get Started...

      Go to:

      Log in as a student/parent.  

      Our School Code is: ESHSSBand

      Your student area password is your Student ID number.

      See videos below for more information.  (I'm not very tech smart, but I'm trying!)
