Thank you to all the parents, families and friends of the Braves’ Entertainment Corps who came out to volunteer or purchased fireworks at our booth. Our Fireworks Booth was a complete success, with our sales increasing 10% more than last year. We couldn’t have done this without each and everyone of the Braves Family!!!! Once a Brave, always a Brave!
Attention Braves’ Entertainment Corps families and supporters! It’s time to kick off our annual TNT Fireworks fundraiser! For the last several years, the Baldwin Park Band Boosters have been the proud sponsors of one of many fireworks stands in the city of Baldwin Park. We are fortunate and thankful that we continue to receive this opportunity. The funds raised during this event help us have a successful marching band season year after year. This year our Firework Stand will be open on June 29th at our new location inside the Park Plaza (Superior Parking Lot on Ramona & Maine).
Students will be able to make $ to their fall registration, when you purchase a $20 voucher. $10 from each voucher sold will be applied to the band/guard student’s fall registration. (A maximum of 4 vouchers can be redeem per student)
Vouchers can only be redeemed only at our Baldwin Park High School Firework Stand and are only valid through July 3, 2018. Vouchers are non-refundable. If not used, the amount paid will become a donation to the band. Redeem early in order to get the best selection. Stand opens on June 29, 2018.
We will also be selling raffle tickets for “The Big Bang!” an enormous assortment box valued at over $500! The student goal is 2 raffle ticket. For every 5 raffle tickets sold, your student will earn a chance at winning one of two $20 gift cards! Drawing will be LIVE on Facebook July 4th.
Thank you for supporting your Braves’ Entertainment Corps!

The Braves’ Entertainment Corps will begin using CHARMS Office Assistant, a management program for musical ensembles to manage student information, calendar, uniform assignments, financial records, chaperones, and much more. In order for us to use this system, it must be up to date. The band boosters have been working very hard to update Charms as much as we can, however we know that some information might not be correct or up to date. It is crucial that we have the most up to date information of all students and parents in our program.
To begin, parents/guardians need to log into Charms and update their student and adult profiles, most especially with e-mails and phone numbers. This is the main way we will be able to contact you with updates and information.
*Please note: If you forget your Student ID number or if you have questions, please contact us via e-mail at email@example.com. New students will be given log-in information during locker assignments, so talk to your student about updating and adding your contact information, as well as getting the password for your student’s account.
Student Area Password: The initial password is your student’s 6 digit student ID number. (if you have more than one student, you will be able to link them after you log into the first student’s profile)
You will be prompted to reset your password
Once you are logged in, you will be sent to your home page.
PARENTS, PLEASE ENTER SOME INFO
Scroll down and select “Update Info”
Your students profile will come up first. Please fill out any missing/incorrect information. Most students will have just their name, grade and sex filled out.
Select “Add New Adult”: this is where you will enter all of your information.
Hint: By clicking on the green dots next to selected fields, it will automatically fill in from the student profile (Last Name, Address, Home Phone)
Be sure to select the ‘Update/Save” button
Thank you so much in your help and we appreciate you taking the time to update your information. This system will help us better communicate with all our students and parents and provide you with the most up to date information about our program.

All Marching band students are free as well as children ages 0-5. Everyone else is $5 a person. Everyone must complete the form, including our students so even if there is no family attending, we need a form for the band student. You can download the form here! Please have your student put the form and money in an envelope and hand it to Mr Huerta. The Dinner includes the meal/beverages/cake and other event related costs. Dinner is being provided by the Band Boosters. Entrée options are Tacos or fried chicken or vegetarian option. Specify your meal choice with your registration.
We Need Your Senior's Baby/Tot Photo
One of the fun features of the Band Banquet is the tribute to the graduating Seniors. That video presentation includes photos of the Seniors as babies/tots. We pair up that cute photo you’ve been saving with a photo of your Senior from this school year; it’s a lot of fun to see how much they’ve changed and how much they’ve stayed the same.
Put a photo into an envelope and drop with Mr Huerta in the band room. We will return your picture once we have scanned it. We can send you a copy of the file, too, if you’d like.
More Photos! If you have some photos of any band student, or group of students, Senior or underclassmen, that you would like to share as part of our yearly memories presentation, please send them in! The more we have the more interesting the video presentations that run as we take our seats and dine before the speaking presentations.
Please give us the Student Name We’d love to say every volunteer parent knows every band member on sight, first and last name, parent’s names, and associated emails, but we can’t. Please include the students’ full names in the file name or with the physical photo.
