Sen. Richardville to celebrate Reading Month in Saline
LANSING - In celebration of March as Reading Month, Sen. Randy Richardville is traveling to schools throughout the 17th Senate District to promote the importance of reading.
“Reading is the foundation for success in school and in life,” said Richardville, R-Monroe. “Children who love to read also love to learn. They are often successful in other subjects too, but students who cannot read well are more likely to struggle in school. We have to encourage students at an early age that reading is important and also fun.”
On Friday, March 28, Sen. Richardville will visit four elementary schools in Saline to share his love of reading. He will read to students at Harvest Elementary at 8:45 a.m., Houghton Elementary at 10 a.m., Woodland Meadows Elementary at 12:30 p.m., and Pleasant Ridge Elementary at 2 p.m.
“The 21st century demands well-educated, highly skilled workers who can learn and adapt throughout their careers,” Richardville said. “Helping students improve their reading ability assists them in developing a skill that will be useful throughout their lives.”
