Important reminder to anyone enrolled in the online/outside school Phys Ed program that the health module tests are due BEFORE December 1, so it's important to get working on them as soon as possible. You need to complete all of the tests and get a minimum of 21/30 to pass, and they need to be done this month. Please see Mr. Robson in room 213 if you're having any trouble.

There are still lots of students who have not returned the permission slip required to begin the online Phys. Ed. program. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get everything done, and you can't count any activity hours until the permission slip is in. See Mr. Robson in room 213 to return your sheet as soon as possible.
