Request for Class Reps at Dickens Main School

Dear Families at the Dickens Main School,

I hope the transition back to school has been a good one for your kids, and I’d like to extend a warm welcome to all new families!

We are still looking for Classroom Parent Reps  can you help?

We have many returning parents who graciously agreed to continue with this role but we still need reps for Divisions: 1, 4, 6, 7, 13 and 14.

Volunteering as a Classroom Parent Rep involves sending 1 to 2 emails a month to parents/guardians in your Division to keep them informed of the non-academic goings on in the school such as PAC-sponsored events and other announcements.

The general email for all reps will be written for you. However, reps are encouraged to personalize the note for their classrooms with division/classroom specific news like field trip announcements or the like.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in doing, and you have a child(ren) in Divisions 1, 4, 6, 7, 13 or 14, please email me at and let me know the following:

- your full name
- the division number
- teacher name(s)

Please Note: If you want to receive the classroom rep emails (whether you are a rep or not), you need to give permission for Vivian to share your contact information with us on the information forms that are going home from school around now. Alternately, you can provide your contact information directly to the parent rep in your classroom.

Thank you!
Anne-Marie Long
PAC member and parent of kids in Divisions 5 &15
