Charms

The Charms Office Assistant is a full-featured office assistant that the Orange Park Band organization utilizes to keep track of our student and parent information such as email addresses, phone numbers, chaperones, instruments and lots more. It enables you and our organization to know what forms you have turned in, what fees you have paid, to communicate by email, and many other functions.

OPHS Band Email

The OPHS Band email system provides important information from the Director and Band Boosters to both students and parents throughout the year.

All students and parents are asked to verify their email addresses in Charms in order to receive regular updates concerning band and booster activities.

To verify or correct your email address, log into CHARMS and select “Personal Info”.

Privacy Concerns

Email addresses from the OPHS Band mailing list are not shared with anyone. Messages will be sent to you as blind carbon copies to avoid publishing your address.
