On March 29th the third through sixth grade students at Spring Lake Elementary received a special visit from author Thomas R. William. Mr. Williams is the author of The Adventures of Dod, The Dark Hood and the Lair. The author donated hundreds of Adventures of Dod books to Spring Lake through the Ken Garff Road to Success Program last fall. The students in grades three through six were challenged to read the book by the end of February. In all, 89 students completed the hefty 24 chapter adventure which is the first in the series.
On March 23, 2012 Students at Spring Lake Elementary celebrated March Madness. Students that have been reading all month, in conjunction with the Ken Garff Road to Success Program earned entries to be able to picked as class winners for prizes. Several students were drawn to play for cash. If chosen they could pick friends or teachers to help shoot from different places on the court for money. They got 35 seconds from when the first basket went in. Several went home with a fist full of cash. Remember to keep reading, and remember it always pays to read.

In preparation for their visit they had taken opportunity to observe the session at school via live video streaming. The students were able to then go and actually spending significant time observing the business of debating and voting in the House and Senate from the galleries at the Capitol.
