Community Education Department

Driver's Education

Spring Lake Park Schools Community Education offers teen driver’s education in cooperation with Safeway Driving School. Safeway Driving School has been graduating teen drivers in the Twin Cities area for over 40 years and their instructors are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.   

The State of Minnesota requires that driver’s education distance learning be conducted in a face-to-face platform, which requires that students have a video camera and audio capabilities on their devices. Safeway has chosen a secure Zoom platform to conduct the class.  Safeway’s only focus is creating safe, responsible teen drivers. Classroom and behind-the-wheel lessons emphasize defensive driving techniques tailored for the inexperienced teen driver while targeting to influence the invincible teen attitude.   

Full Course Fee of $370 is broken into three payments: 

$220 due at registration time, $150 ($75 on the first lesson and $75 on the second lesson); checks made payable to Safeway Driving School or call Safeway before behind-the-wheel to pay by credit card   

The next class sessions are: 

  • September 13-28
  • October 4-26 (no class the week of October 18)

Fall Play - ALMOST MAINE - Directed by: Kevin Dutcher 
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So, it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

  • Information was mailed out in May of 2018 concerning your senior headshots for the yearbook.
  • Last Chance Senior Head Shot Day will be on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, during 4th period lunch and academic times. 

***IMPORTANT NOTE: If your photo is NOT done by David Banks on this day, you will NOT be in the year book!

  • This is the absolute last day to have a professional head shot taken by David Bank Studios.
  • This sitting is FREE!! Again, David Bank Studios is our official senior yearbook photographer and we are under contract to work with them. Regular standard sitting fees start at $30.

Senior Video

  • This is our last year in high school-- make sure they do not forget us! Let's make a video showing everyone all that we've accomplished here!
  • A small group of students are planning on creating a "music video" to do just that. We would like to make a lip synching video to one of two songs; you can vote for your favorite at https://goo.gl/forms/hYKP6wiCWz9s6gy72.
  • To make this music video great we want to get help from all of you. We are looking for people that want to help plan this out and be "Directors." You will be recording short videos (10-25 seconds) of yourself and others having fun.
  • If you want more information about helping out on this project, please contact Mack Latham by email: 19mlatha@mypanthers.org or speak with Ms. Hiatt in room C211.
