Senator Rocca will promote the importance of reading to elementary and middle schoolers
STERLING HEIGHTS – March is National Reading Awareness Month and in an effort to emphasize the importance of reading, Noor International Academy’s elementary and middle school students will receive a visit from Senator Tory Rocca. Senator Rocca will read to fourth to seventh grade students during his visit to the school on March 3rd.
“Instilling a love of reading in our students is extremely important, especially as they approach their teenage years. Studies show that leisure reading by teens aids in the learning process and leads to better performance in school and greater vocabulary development,” said Nawal Hamadeh, President and CEO of Hamadeh Educational Services (HES).
State Senator Tory Rocca represents the 10th Senate District – consisting of Sterling Heights, Clinton Township, and Macomb Township. He is serving his second term in the Michigan Senate and previously served three term in the state House of Representatives. Rocca grew up and attended school in Macomb County.
“Reading to children has been shown to generate an interest in learning, a creative spirit and a confidence in academic ability later in life,” said Rocca. “During March is Reading Month, students across Michigan and the country celebrate the importance of reading. I look forward to visiting Noor International Academy as a guest reader and talking to the students.”
