Health and Personal Fitness (PE) Course Information
Both Health and Personal Fitness (PE) are Required for Graduation
Health covers knowledge and skills necessary for personal health and well-being and the prevention and treatment of injury. Additional information covered includes disease prevention, relationships, consumer health, the life cycle, and preventing abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and drugs.
Personal Fitness (PE) provides students with the basic knowledge and understanding that physical fitness, exercise, and diet are essential in developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Important Information about Taking PE and Health Online
On the first day of the session, students will access their online course through the Logins tab at www.gcpsk12.org/GwinnettOnline in the Desire2Learn login area. Students will use their GCPS student ID number for both their username and password. Once logged in, students will click on the course title to enter the session homeroom.
By the first day of the session, students will receive a welcome phone call from their teacher, or a welcome email sent to their GCPS email address, not to a personal email address. The teacher’s contact information also is posted on the course home page. Students are expected to check their GCPS email daily during the summer session for important information.
Important Beginning of Term Information
“Summer Beginning of Term Information” is part of the registration system in MyPaymentsPlus. When the course is selected in MyPaymentsPlus, the Beginning of Term (BOT) letter will automatically pop up. The letter requires a signature confirming that the student has read and understands the information. This information also is available in the “BOT Letter Summer” link under the Programs–Summer tab at www.gcpsk12.org/GwinnettOnline
Personal Fitness (PE)
Students will complete a pre-fitness self-test at home. Please visit the “Summer Program> Health and PE” page at www.gcpsk12.org/GwinnettOnline for a detailed description of how we use fitness tracking technology to help the teachers assess students’ activity with this course.
