MARCHING BAND - HOW WE COMMUNICATE WITH YOU
BAND APP - BAND is our communication platform for quick reminders, forms, bus and room sign ups, and many other things. Students are required to register for the BAND and parents are encouraged to register to stay informed. The link for our BAND is below and can be accessed via a browser or iOS/Android app. BAND
CHARMS - Charms is our membership database where we can manage your information while you are a member of the VJA Band. This platform is where we handle your financial accounts including payments and fundraiser accounts. Student inventory items will also be managed here. You’ll be able to see what uniform number they have (marching band) and school-owned instruments that are checked out. Most importantly, this is how we communicate with you via email. You’ll receive emails from me and members of our music parent board regarding updates and a variety of other topics and trips throughout the year. We ask that you verify your information with one of our parents before leaving the meeting or by logging into Charms with your student ID. The school code for Charms when you first log in is “vjaband”
FACEBOOK - We have two Facebook pages. One that is a public “like” page at www.facebook.com/vjabands. The public page is where we share accomplishments, successes, and memories for you to share as a member of the program. We also have a closed group for you to join at www.facebook.com/groups/vjabands. You have to request to join and answer the questions. The closed group is more logistical in nature and is another place to receive information about the goings-on of the program. During the marching season, we post lots of photos in the group.
TWITTER - Our Twitter page is https://twitter.com/vjabands Feel free to follow. It’ll have the same posts as the Facebook page.
VJA Music Notes Newsletter: This weekly newsletter contains information about marching band, as well as information about the entire Music Department and all of our events throughout the year: sites.google.com/d230.org/vjamusicnotes/home
Don’t worry, the same information is posted and emailed to all of these platforms. As parents, you shouldn’t feel like you have to access all of these social media platforms if you don’t want to. These are just other places we share the same information for people to access easily.
