How to Log In to Charms

Each student in the Dulles MS Viking Band has an account in Charms, our band management program. We use Charms for communication, calendars, finances, recording assignments, handouts, etc. Here’s how to get in!

It’s a bit tricky to get to the Parent/Student login page. You can bookmark this link, or use the handy link in the right column QUICK LINKS here.

https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/parents.asp
(To get here, from the Charms homepage, you must hover over (don’t click on!) the LOGIN button and click on the Parents/Students/Members link that pops up below it.)

Enter “dullesmsband” into the login window:

Then, enter your student’s six-digit ID number as the password (skip the zero.) And you’re in!

Welcome Band Students and Families

Our 2018 band welcome and cookout was a huge success! Returning seventh and eighth grade DMS Viking Band students and their families met new Director Mr. Odeh and Assistant Director Ms. Ye and enjoyed a meet-and-greet and shared a meal together.
