Phantoms goaltender Scott Munroe and Flyers alumni Keith Primeau helped to celebrate the 30,000 students the Flyers school assembly program has reached this season.
As part of the Flyers/Phantoms School Assembly Program, Flyers alumni Keith Primeau, Phantoms goaltender Scott Munroe, along with Flyers Ambassador of Hockey Bob “The Hound” Kelly addressed students at Richard Stockton Elementary School about the Flyers/Phantoms’ formula for success - TEAM (Teamwork, Education, Attitude and Motivation). In celebration of the 30,000th student, the Flyers presented the school with a special certificate commemorating the occasion. Additionally, each student in the assembly received a certificate celebrating their involvement. This assembly marked the 103rd school this year, which will conclude the 2006-07 school year with a new record of 105 schools.
Kelly, Phantoms mascot Phlex and members of the Fan Development staff visited many schools throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region this year. The Flyers/Phantoms Assembly program goal is to define the meaning of teamwork and help children recognize the importance of teamwork in school, sports, at home and throughout their daily lives. The program culminates with interactive games designed to get the students and teachers more involved and offers special Flyers giveaways to all in attendance. In 2005-06, the Flyers and Phantoms visited 84 schools and reached over 25,000 students.
