8:00 am – 5:00 pm – Tire Rack Street Survival – Cumming Fairgrounds – Real world. Hands on.

They master the application of driving physics using their car. They learn how to make good driving decisions and react more quickly. They become more aware and learn how to begin anticipating the actions of other drivers. The Tire Rack Street Survival school is designed to equip your child with valuable driving skills that will help keep them safe on the road. You are encouraged to spend the day with your student. You will be able to attend the classroom portion while instructors are teaching the students. The instructors will be available throughout the day to answer questions you might have about the course events your son or daughter are going through. The course is $95. The schedule varies at each location slightly, but it’s a full day. We feed all students, parents, and volunteers lunch and have some educational demonstrations during that period as well. For more info check out http://streetsurvival.org/schools/frequently-asked-questions/

Thornton Wilder’s final word on how he wanted his play performed is an invaluable addition to the American stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally. Performances: Thursday, February 1st @ 7:00pm Friday, February 2nd @ 7:00pm Saturday, February 3rd @ 7:00pm. Tickets are $5.00 for students and $7.00 for adults. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
