The school newspaper I advise was the front-page feature in the community newspaper this evening. It was a bit of a delay from when my students earned a major award in November. Still, it was a nice feature to see, and I suspect there will be much complimenting at work tomorrow. The students had some nice things to say about me, and that was pleasant, of course.
Interestingly, the reporter wanted to see a typical layout night, which honestly doesn't happen very often. She and the photographer arrived at school around 4 p.m., when the mood was light and the amount of work accomplished was on track. However, the night ended up being the longest we've been there all year, in some part due to the distraction of the photographer and reporter. Still, we ended the night fine and it was good to get the coverage.
By the way, turns out the reporter is a former student of one of my good friends and colleagues from the south Puget Sound area. Small world.
