SD Senior Honor Choir Registration Info:

posted in: LHS Chorus News | 0

Congratulations to
you and your students, we are so happy that you will be a part of the 46th SD Honor Choir!  

 Your students will experience a week of singing like no other!  They will work

with a professional choir director that will challenge them to make wonderful
music and increase their choral knowledge that they will bring home to your

Please read EVERYTHING in this email, as you and your singers are responsible for this information!

  •  ·  Here is the letter  to share
    with each of your singers.  This contains the basic information about
    camp; dates, costs, etc.

·  Here are the camp rules and
information about the Honor Choir Foundation.

·  MOST IMPORTANTLY: our online camp
registration form
!  Please keep this link on your computer
and share it with each singer!  They have the option to pay directly to
PayPal, or to mail check/money orders to me.  They also have the option to
have the money sent by the school. 

Every year I have a student
or director ask about coming late to camp.  Your singer MUST be in
attendance at the first rehearsal, or they will not be allowed into camp. 
The Camp Director will be sending information as to the exact time of this
rehearsal, but it is usually around 5:30 pm on the Sunday that camp starts.  

*Notes about the online registration form:  

They will need to scan the front and back of insurance
cards.  If they don’t have medical insurance, they have an option to check
a box indicating such. They will have to do one or the other to send the form.

They will have to pay directly to PayPal (for a $9 fee), or choose
an option to mail a check/money order to me, or if your school is paying, they
can choose that option.

We hope that this will help streamline the entire registration process for
everyone!  Please let me know if you have concerns or questions about
anything for camp. Please share all of this with your honored singers as soon
as possible, so that they will be able to make the June 1st deadline!

How to access parent/student information in Charms

posted in: LHS Chorus News | 0
  • Log on to, and click “ENTER / LOG IN” in the upper right corner.
  • Locate the “PARENT/STUDENT/MEMBERS LOGIN” section of the web page.
  • Login to your student’s program account using the following School Code:


  • This will bring up the main “Public” page.  This will allow you to look at the “public” calendar for your organization, event list, and handouts and other “publicly shared” files, as well as a few other options.
  • The first time you go here, enter your child’s ID NUMBER (provided by your Director) into the Student Area Password field.  You will be directed to the Change Password screen, to set a personal password different from the ID, for future use.  You may also be directed to create both a unique Username and Password for the student.  There are also mechanisms to recover/reset a lost Username/Password – when you create your new password, create a “hint” as well.
  • Whenever you enter using this Username/password, another more detailed screen appears, with various button options for you to access areas in the Charms account.  What appears here is partially up to the Account Administrator or Head Director.
  • Here is an area in which you can help the director/administrator maintain his/her records:
    • Update Personal Information – if the director has allowed it, you  may help make changes to your and your child’s student information page (such as updating phone numbers / cell carriers and email addresses if they change) to help them communicate with you more effectively. You may also be able to indicate which parent volunteer/resource groups you would like to participate in, if this feature is activated. Click Update Info to save changes. 
  • The Calendar may list events, rehearsals, and volunteer/RSVP opportunities.
  • Most importantly, the parent page assists both you and the teacher to communicate with each other.  Stay up to date on what’s going on with your student!
  • You can also download the Charms App to your smartphone – search your App Store for “Charms Parent/Student Portal” (or “Charms Blue”).  It’s the way to stay in touch on the go!
