CutTime Replaces Charms

January 10, 2021

Good morning Raven Band families!

Due to our transition over to CutTime, we will no longer be sending weekly emails via CHARMS. You can find this week's Directors Update with tons of important info and a few action items in your Canvas messages, which was sent to all students AND their parents. All weekly director's updates will be posted in Canvas from this point forward. 


Mrs. Griffis
