Driver’s Education Classes At Churchill

In high school, you go through major life events, both positive and negative. One major life event that is often seen in a positive light is finally learning how to drive. You now have a whole new type of freedom, the ability to get up and go, which is something many teenagers crave.

Driving courses are held at several of the NEISD high schools, Churchill included. There are two ways to register for them; manually, or online.  Online registration is quite simple, as all you have to do is fill out the contract, registration, and payment. Manual registration is very similar, with the only difference being that you can register in person, fax, or email (There is more information about that on the website, link listed below).

Of course, these classes aren’t free. NEISD is offering an amazing opportunity for students, one that will benefit them immensely. As a result, this program costs around $350.00. This number seems very high, but this includes in car and in class training.

You get 32 hours of classroom instruction. On top of that, you get 7 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, and a minimum 7 hours of in car observation. If that doesn’t seem like it’s right for you, they also provide blended online/in car training, in car only programs, and classroom instruction only programs. As you can see, these courses are very flexible, as every student needs a different program so that they can be successful.

You must be 15 or older to participate in these programs, so don’t let this chance pass you by.  You can guarantee your newfound freedom, license in hand, all at your own high school.


Playoff Hopeful

The mighty Churchill football team has fought back from a 1-4 record to a good 4-5 record putting them in the spotlight of playoff hopefuls. Only losing one in the past four games, the chargers have one opponent left to play. The Roosevelt Rough Riders.

The chargers are usually victorious when matched up against the Rough Riders, but this matchup is so much more intense. With a win the chargers will end the season with a 5-5 record that will put them in the playoffs, but with a loss,  their season will end with broken hearts and regrets.

This seasons early struggles set the chargers back quite a bit, but they have fought  back with heart, sweat, and tears to get a shot to make the playoffs, and there is nothing stopping them besides themselves.
