Starting in the 2013-2014 school year, the NCHS Bands Department will be using Charms Office Assistant to organize all elements of the band program. This includes checking out instruments, distributing uniforms and tuxedos, as well as communicating with parents and students. We are also working on getting the ability to make all marching band and trip fee payments online through charms and paypal!
