Log in Your Practice Time

Make sure you log in your practice time to CHARMS today.

The CHARMS website begins a new week at Midnight every Sunday – which means that you will not get credit for any practicing you do if you don’t log it in before midnight.  It’s kinda like how Cinderella could only stay at the Ball until midnight, except, that instead of your carriage turning into a pumpkin, you get a zero for a practice record (or something like that…).

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!!
