Dedicated Music Space @ Dickens Main School

Dear Dickens Parents,

This is our second posting to you in regards to Saving a Dedicated Music Space at Dickens Main School.  We are meeting with a VSB rep, to discuss the loss of our dedicated music space, on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 so please send in your letter as soon as possible. 

Please note though that after Tuesday is still ok to send letters as this is an ongoing process.   

We have created a long and short template letter [click on the links below] that you can use as a whole or part. We have also given you all the emails (on the template letters) for sending your letter of support today. Please share these templates with everyone you know that will support our efforts:

The only hope we have of maintaining a designated space for music at Dickens is for parents and community members to let the Board know how much we value the program.

In case you missed the previous posting on the PAC blog, here is the info:

As you have heard from Anna Maria’s note home we will be losing our dedicated Music Room next year at Dickens due to an increase in student enrolment and the need for another classroom.

We are a group of interested parents who believe that we must make room in our school for all the children in our neighbourhood. We also believe that we cannot lose the dedicated Music Space for our Marimba program. Without dedicated space it will be impossible to continue to deliver a full marimba program to the kids and could mean a very watered down music program at Dickens.

We invite you to join in our strong, quick and decisive response to the Vancouver School Board on this matter. The only hope we have of maintaining a designated space for music at Dickens is for parents to let the Board know how much we value the program.

We will keep posting updates on how you can help with Saving our Dedicated Music Space at Dickens Main in the coming weeks.
