To adequately support our band program, each family should plan to volunteer a total of 20 hours throughout the year. There are many volunteer opportunities available including pushing equipment onto the field at football games or competitions, hemming or washing uniforms at home, driving kids around, feeding the kids, coordinating a fundraiser, and much more!
Each family is asked to become involved in one of our three biggest fundraisers: March-a-thon, CBA Regionals, or the Auction and Appeal Event.
We track all of your payments towards your Commitment Fee (as well as extra fees such as shoes, shirts, Winter Percussion, Winter Guard and individual sales credits) in an online database program called CHARMS. Each student has their own CHARMS account, and most of our email communications are sent through CHARMS. Account statements are sent out quarterly and you can view your account status and contact information any time within the CHARMS site.Please note, you will need your student’s BVSD ID to log in to CHARMS. The school code is centaurushs.
You can navigate to CHARMS by logging onto our band website at www.centaurusband.org, then click on the Boosters menu tab. On the Boosters page, click on the blue CHARMS icon on the left side of the screen, which will open the CHARMS website, www.charmsoffice.com. In the upper right, under the Login button, click on Parents/Students/Members. You will be prompted to enter our School Code, which is CentaurusHSBand. Next, you will be prompted to enter the Student Area Password. This is your student’s BVSD student ID (ask your student for this or we can give it to you). Please note, upon your first login, you may be asked to change your password from your Student’s ID to something more meaningful.
