Greetings, Ryle Band Family!
And a successful first week of band camp has been completed.
Next week starts our 8:30 AM-9:00 PM schedule. Students will need to bring lunch, and will have dinner provided by the boosters. There are many donations needed for dinners over the next couple of weeks- be sure to go to the Charms calendar, click the hand by Dinner Donation and Drop Off, and sign up to bring something.
With a new year and a new organization, rather than having information disseminated through a variety of channels, we are going to have all of your pertinent band information in one place: Charms. As a reminder, the Charms Calendar contains all official band activities.
Charms can be accessed a number of ways, but the easiest way is through the app, which you can get at the links below:
Once you have downloaded the app:
- School Code is RyleHSBand
- Enter Student ID for password
- Once you are logged in on the app, click the lines in the upper right corner. This will take you to a quick menu with the news, calendar, volunteer needs, etc.
If you do not have access to a smartphone, you can always get access on your laptop or desktop through ryleband.com and clicking on the Charms Calendar link. You can log into your account in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.
Charms is your go-to place to stay up to date with all activities, communications, and volunteer needs of the broader organization.
