  • PE 3-4 0-Period Interest Survey
    CURRENT FRESHMEN: Please fill out this form ONLY if you are a current SMHS 9th grader requesting to take PE 3-4 next year as a 0-period class (meeting daily, 7:00-7:54am). Based on the number of students interested, administration will decide whether to offer one section of 0-Period PE 3-4. If there are many current 9th graders interested, priority will go to those requesting a Not-at-School period in their schedules (versus an 8-period day, which is not recommended for any student).
