The first day of school is always an exciting day, but it is even more exciting when Phillies outfielder Ben Revere and the Phillies Phanatic appear at your school.
Students at Horace Mann Elementary in Cherry Hill enjoyed a lunch time surprise on Tuesday, Sept. 3. Ben Revere growth charts decorated the cafeteria and Phillies ambassador Scott Palmer helped students measure how much they grew over the summer. When the students started a Phillies chant, Ben Revere appeared from behind the stage curtain. He encouraged students to eat healthy foods, exercise, study, and listen to mom & dad.
