SQUARE Dancing at Dickens

The square dancing was a blast! The week long dance program at Dickens main, ended with two family dances on Friday, March 3 when students, teachers and parents “do-si-doed” to the sounds of live fiddle and banjo led by '”Professor Banjo”, Paul Silvera, and his band -

Paul has led traditional square dances at festivals & community events across the Pacific Northwest. We were fortunate to have him come to Dickens, and introduce our children to this form of dance.  

Thank you to all staff and to Kim's leadership in organising such a great event!

And thanks to all Dickens Parents & Guardians, who made this dance program possible through some of the funds raised at last year’s Spring Fling.

Summer Makeover for the Dickens PAC Blog

Hello Dickens Parents/Guardians and Friends,

Are you a Digital Artist also skilled in Blog Design?

Would you be willing to help us with a basic makeover for the Dickens PAC? e.g. Changing the layout template, creating a new header and optimizing the sidebars etc

We’ve been running on Google’s Blogger since 2011 at |  To date we’ve used feedburner (owned but no longer serviced by Google) for signing up Dickens subscribers — however, we are possibly looking to switch to MailChimp as this is a more stable email platform.

If you can assist with this makeover or have a friend that you can refer to us, please contact Leone at

Potential Timeline: The makeover has to take place over the month of July 2017, while school is out, but we can work according to your schedule through July.

Thank you,
Dickens PAC Exec
