In the past two weeks I have felt like I'm living on Charms! I have printed statements for the high school band, e-mailed them home to their parents the next week, gotten the calendar for next year lined out and done inventory, more inventory, and more inventory. I've marked everything going out for summer repair and will be providing our repair guys with a print out of everything that is going to them.
Music is being checked back in and the band library is finally completely on Charms. We'll be printing labels this summer to get our boxes marked consistently. We're also in the process of buying new uniforms and I promise you that bar codes will be going in those to speed up our check out/in process.
In the meantime, we've been with-in 27 miles of Joplin, MO (thanks for checking on us the night of the storm!) and we've used Charms to contact our families to let them know that Missouri Bands are banding together to help the Joplin band family with supplies, money and anything else that they need. Our trailer is full and will roll tomorrow to another Charms school (Webb City) where they will help distribute everything out.
Thanks Charms for everything you do! It makes our lives easier and makes our parents happier. That's a WIN/WIN if I've ever heard one!
