Dickison Elementary School

Compton, CA


During the three-week read-a-thon students from Dickison Elementary School kept journals to document their reading. Altogether they read 77,585 pages! A fourth grader, from Mrs. Clifford’s class, was the top reader in the entire school, reading 3,283 pages! Because of everyone’s hard work and effort, Dickison Dolphins, along with The Noble Foundation, were able to donate 35 copies of the bilingual edition of The Jester Has Lost His Jingle and 35 Jester & Pharley Dolls to Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach, CA, for use with their young patients. Danny Luna from Miller Children’s attended the read-a-thon recognition assembly to accept the Jester book and doll donation and give everyone involved a huge thank you!
