How to access your FCPS Charms Account

The JMHS Band Program will be using the Charms Office system as the MAIN DATA SOURCE for the band as well as a method to track and collect FCPS fee payments and FCPS forms.  After logging into Charms Office, parents and students will be able to review and update JMHS Band personal information, see their payment status for official FCPS Fees (and pay them via Credit Card if they desire), and view/download any outstanding FCPS forms that are required for band participation. 

The E-Mail addresses entered into Charms for students and parents will serve as the main e-mail database for the band program.  With this system all of these address will be part of the e-mail system (this is upgrade!!!)

Additionally the student cell numbers and carriers entered in Charms will serve as the text distribution network.


The instructions below should provide you easy login access to the system:

  1. Log on to www.charmsoffice.com, and click the “ENTER/LOG IN” link at upper right.
  2. Locate the “PARENT/STUDENT/MEMBERS LOGIN” section of the web page.
  3. Login to your child’s program account using the following School Code: FCPSJamesMadisonHSBand (or use the JMHS Band Direct Link to avoid steps 1-3 above)
  4. On this main entry page, enter your child’s ID NUMBER (this is initially set as your FCPS Student ID#) as a Student Area Password
  5. This will take the user to the Official student area within charms.

Once you have achieved student login, you can:

  • Create your own, unique password by clicking on the “lock” (Change Password Button)
  • Make Online Payments / Review your FCPS Fees (Finances Button) When credit card payment is activated, you will see blue buttons in the four main areas of the financial statement indicating your ability to make online payments.
  • View the status of required FCPS Forms(Forms Collected Button) **Please Note you CAN NOT upload forms in Charms - this feature does not exist**
  • View school instruments that are checked out 
  • Combine Multiple Students into a single FCPS Charms Login (Multiple Students Button)

What do you do if your FCPS student ID number does not initiate an account login?

  • Try One more time
  • Send an email to Mr. Hackbarth to confirm you account is active
