Back to School with Very Local: Phys Ed

From dancing to fall hikes, this is not your high school gym class

by Very Local PGH | September 9, 2020

Welcome to Day 2 of back-to-school week at Very Local PGH. Today’s topic is Phys Ed. Whether you broke your finger the one time you participated in softball or you broke the school record in the mile, we have something for you. Today’s stories include walking tours and socially distant yoga classes. We choose some spots to go leaf-peeping and we profile PearlArts Studios. Consider this your cheat sheet; Ready, sweat, go.
