Hello Fellow CP kids:

This my story of the Fifth Grade and Mr. Amble:

Mr Amble had the ability to help every child in different ways, what he taught me was that no matter how different you were their was a place for you.

I remember several things about fifth grade that I have shared with my own fifth grade child (Anthony). Always be nice to every kid no matter what. You see when I was in fifth grade I did not like to go to school very much, Mr Amble got involved in different ways one was that I come to school earlier to raise the flag in the morning. I did not like to get to school early see so he made it fun, I like fun.

When we start the school year out and we needed a place to put the newspaper he had me talk to my Dad and talk him into it!! Now looking back he talked to my Dad first then lead me to believe I talked him into it. A born salesperson. Then by letting me know to always respect people and their differences. Like Billy Amish, Charles Baden, Roberto Jara. I played with everyone I did not just play one or two different kids I knew everyone and played with everyone.

As I write this story it was not all fun and games that year my grandfather died who was my best friend who got me involve in sports especially baseball. Mr. Amble must known that because how he help me learn through that time by getting me involved like the paperdrive. I have little story about the paperdrive has well it goes like this: Don"t Mr Jacober class know they might get a little mad. If I remember the class who had the most papers by weight got to go the Zoo that year. See after put all the papers that we could in our garage we had to start stacking them on the side yard and because of that we also had to water the lawn I not sure how much we one by. HHHMMM :-)

How about the hockey tournament in class? I think I might of won that or did Mr Amble beat me I don't remember.

I will never forget the story of Where the Red Fern Grows and how half the class was crying at the end. I Still remember recess and playing baseball.

How about the school play where Sonya Hansen did her sign langauge. Steve I agree with you, I think every boy had a crush on Sonya at least I did. The song that Charles sang wasn't it about a little red wagon? I also remember going the minute king and getting candy to bring back at lunch time. I got into trouble over that one.

How about Frank Kerr was he in our class? I really don't remember who was all in our class but I hope to see all of you and Buzz's Retirement party and or at the reunion.

I could write a book about what happened after fifth grade but I am going to leave that story for a different time.
