Update Your Child’s Charms Contact Information:
Recently, the Randolph High School Band Parents Association sent out an email regarding an evening informational meeting about the RHS Band Program. I sent out a reminder the day of, and I was alerted to the fact that the original RHS BPA emails didn't make it to all families. I’ve done some investigation, and I've discovered the reason.
You don’t need to know the full explanation (but it’s below if you want to read it). What you do need to do is update all contact information in your child’s Charms account. Follow these detailed instructions on how to do so: Click Here for Charms Update Information
Explanation (you can skip this part) on what the problem was: The RHSBPA sent the emails to the 8th Grade Band group using Charms. However, the email was only set to send the email to parents, not students (I typically send mine to both parents & students). The problem is that in the database, some students have parent emails located in the student section, and no email is located in the parent section. (This is due to how Charms imports information that we get in 5th grade from Genesis). I’ve updated a few accounts on my own since then, but I need your help to ensure that your child’s Charms account is up to date.

RHS Band Class Sign-Up:
RHS Class Sign-ups are happening now, and the RHS Band Class has a LOT to offer students. If you have any questions about the band class at RHS, please feel free to ask myself or the RHS Director of Bands, Mrs. Dawn Russo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The RHS Band program is one of the strongest in the state of New Jersey, and involvement in music is good for students for so many reasons: Here’s scientific proof:
