Driver’s Education @ Chaska High School Room G130
Aug 8 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Community Education, in collaboration with Safeway Driving School, offers students ages 14½ and older the opportunity to participate in classroom instruction to prepare them for the MN permit test. All instructors are licensed by the MN Department of Public Safety.

Behind-the-wheel registration and instruction must be set up with Safeway Driving School, 651.351.9150, www.safewaydrivingschool.com. The cost is $150 and is payable to Safeway at the lessons.

Classroom instruction prepares the student to take the Minnesota permit test and begin the responsibility of driving. The 30 hours of classroom is structured into 10 independent lessons. Students must be on time for all classes. Riding the district activity bus may not ensure timely arrival so alternative arrangements should be made. If a student misses a lesson, they can make up that exact lesson number at the next session or at one of Safeway’s other locations. After class is completed, students that are 15 years old are eligible to take their permit test at any Minnesota exam center. Students can take the class at age 14½ but cannot take their permit test until age 15.

Parent involvement is required to produce safe, responsible teen drivers. It is critical that parents plan to practice regularly with their new student drivers. Safeway offers detailed information on its web site to assist parents with understanding Minnesota laws and requirements for student drivers. Safeway strongly encourages parents to review its parent information, attend a Parent Class or watch the online Parent Class videos at www.safewaydrivingschool.com.

Behind-the-wheel registration and instruction must be directly set up with Safeway Driving School, 651.351.9150,www.safewaydrivingschool.com. The cost is $150 and is payable to Safeway at the lessons. Includes six hours of driving in three, two-hour private lessons. All driving is done in a real car on actual city streets, highways and freeways with a responsible, licensed Safeway instructor. Safeway recommends students take their first lesson 6-8 weeks after receiving their permit. The lessons should be a minimum of 30 days apart to allow for practice driving. The lessons can be completed up to one year after completing classroom. Scheduling is offered online for 24/7 convenience. All of Safeway’s cars are white with identical graphics, so parents and students are confident that it is a Safeway car picking up the student for a lesson. Students can get picked up for their behind-the-wheel lesson from home, school or work.

Ages 9 – 15 years
This course is about learning basics of composition and color applications with painting. We will also add dimension to a painting in the manner of collage. This means adhering dimensional materials to the painting and then painting them to work with the underlying painting. Participants will have the option of doing a painting only or to enhance their painting with dimension. The instructor will bring appropriate dimensional materials for participants to use if they choose. A materials list will be emailed to students prior to the start of class that students will be responsible for picking up.

Please contact the instructor with any questions at 952-556-8726 or theartofsaraleehanlon@gmail.com.
