Cunnius - Stauffer Wedding Announcement
from 1/17/97 Reading Eagle/Times

Christine Cunnius & Glyn Stauffer, Wedding Announcement
High School
Senior Memories (Copied directly from the Senior Yearbook):
Feens ... Mel ... Nina and Steve, #1 and #2 ... AM ... JB ... CNA -- Elvina ... JH (mom) ... "yellow maniac" ... EC ... "the pack" meets "the girls" ... dance marathon ... "Sharks" ... Bruce: I miss you baby ... good luck ... goodbye Johnny G.
Chris Mal Notes:
This is what Mr. Minter wrote in Chrissie's yearbook:  "Why I am writing in your yearbook is beyond me. You didn't like my class. You always gave me a hard time.  You did very little work and you never came to school. Otherwise I enjoyed having you. Good luck in K-town. Don't forget all the great background I gave you."
From the April 4th, 2006 Reading Eagle "Letters to the Editor":
Teachers getting a bad reputation


I have never seen better teachers than I do in the Reading School District. We work harder than teachers in any other district in Berks County.

We are getting a bad reputation due to No Child Left Behind (�Diplomas in jeopardy for most RHS seniors,� Reading Eagle, March 29). We should be holding our heads up with pride that we get through each day with a full day of lessons being taught.

No Child Left Behind is making it harder for us to actually teach. We do not have teachable moments anymore. If something isn�t in the lesson plan, we do not dare go off on a tangent and teach to benefit the students.

All of the testing and progress monitoring that we are doing takes too much time away from actually teaching our students. School isn�t fun anymore for students. They say, �Another test?�

Now No Child Left Behind wants to make us accountable for science as well.

If we keep giving more and more tests, how will the students learn anything other than how to take a test?

It's a Small World:
When Chrissie was going to RACC, one of her professors for Special Education was Bob Pettit's sister.

Chrissie has worked with Bob Schmitz's wife for the last two years (as of 2005.)  (By the way, speaking of Bob Schmitz, according to the 1984 yearbook, where everyone else listed the college they planned to attend the following year, Bob listed that planned to become a "Supreme Being.")
From the October 1984 Penn Post
     New Students:  CHRISTINE CUNNIUS, from Central, feels Mt. Penn has better teachers and nicer students. She likes the early dismissal but wishes there was more free time. The only complaint she has is that we have hardly any dances.

(Cutest Picture in
the yearbook IMHO)

On this page it says, "Congratulations Chrissie Cunnius!  Best of Luck in the Future. Love Mom, Dad, Felicia and Jim, Melanie"

Number people who are shaking their heads in disbelief
at the fact that I actually saved newspaper clippings of
people from our high school class:
