From Pottstown School District Director of Community Relations John J. Armato:
Students at recently were visited by representatives from the Camden Riversharks baseball team at an assembly sponsored by AmeriHealth.
The “Line Drives for Healthy Lives” program is designed to bring a higher level of awareness of child health and wellness issues. The unique assembly program provides students the opportunity to learn key facts in keeping a healthier lifestyle and staying active.
Rivershark mascots “Finley” and “Blooper” led the students through a fun and interactive presentation which is informative and physically challenging. Riversharks’ General Manager Adam Lorber explains the purpose for the Riversharks involvement, “We have always believed in advocating for a healthier lifestyle. Getting students involved in becoming more health conscience can help shape their future and those around them. By having this assembly program, the Riversharks and AmeriHealth are able to directly speak to students in a fun atmosphere.
“When students are healthy and alert, they are able to take greater advantage of the educational opportunities presented to them," said Matt Moyer, Rupert Elementary principal.
