If you are planning on taking Summer School Gym please read:

Summer School Gym's course code is PAF2O and Grade 9 Gym's course code is PPL1O. This means that students can absolutely take both gym courses and receive a credit for each; the second gym will count as one of you electives. If you wish to replace Grade 9 Gym with an additional elective this can be addressed when school resumes in September. Sign up sheets will be made available and announcements made when Guidance is ready to see those students. Please note that not all changes will be possible and some classes may be full.
