Freshman Band Registration

Freshmen (non-marching), welcome to the Lakota West Bands!

There are three important steps to complete on our Freshman Band Registration page as you start the new school year:

  1. Subscribe to our latest band announcements by Email, Twitter, or RSS feed. Also, follow Lakota West Bands on Facebook and Instagram.
  2. After the Freshman Band Parent Meeting, access your CHARMS account to complete and verify that all of your student and parent contact information is correct. Charms is our band management system where students and parents can access payment information, student fundraising account balances, and band music uploads.
  3. Order and pay for your band t-shirt to be worn at the Freshman Night/Eighth Grade Night football game, as well as for the Tag Day fundraiser. The cost is $7.00 and can be paid online by credit card or PayPal account. Shirts will be delivered at school.
