Physical Education Program

At Pear Tree Elementary, your child will receive 1 hour of physical education every day. That’s 5 hours per week!

Our Physical Education Program is directly tied to our whole-child education approach.

In fact, through our daily Physical Education Program we develop your child’s academic, social-emotional and physical abilities.
