Rep Potvin visits local school to kick off March is Reading Month

first_img State Rep. Phil Potvin kicked off March is Reading Month in Big Rapids this week at Riverview Elementary School.  He was able to visit the second and third grade classrooms of teachers Annette Maat and Anne Orange, where he read “Hooray for Grandparents’ Day.” “Being the grandfather to eight children, I know how important reading to them is and how it really fosters growth in more ways than just academics,” said Rep. Potvin, R-Cadillac. “Books really are a lot of fun for everyone and I was so happy to see all of the kids engaged and excited about reading.”March is Reading Month is an annual event designed to recognize the importance of reading in children’s future success and to encourage their social and intellectual development.  Early reading proficiency is shown to be a core element for successful educational pursuits in children.The special nature of Potvin’s visits puts a renewed focus on reading and reinforces how important it is to the students.“We can all do our part to encourage children to read, and this is my way to make it a fun, special occasion for them,” Potvin said. “I hope to use these classroom reading visits this month to inspire our students to explore new interests and hopefully find a few interesting books along the way that will stay with them for a lifetime.”Rep. Potvin has plans to visit many more schools this month and looks forward to sharing his favorite book with students throughout Mecosta, Osceola, and Wexford Counties.  Administrators and educators interested in scheduling a time for him to read are encouraged to contact his office by phone at 517-373-1747 or by email at [email protected] 06Mar Rep.
