YLYB #30: No Football

During football season, every Friday night means going to the game and monitoring my shooters – photography and video.  I sometimes shoot with them, but if I have a full crew – let them do the shooting.  But today, I have a day off.  It is so great, it has been four weeks since school started and I need the break.  A calm Friday night at home and maybe even a weekend of chill.

Today our principal spoke to my yearbook/TV news staffs.  I had asked him to do so and I was really happy afterwards.  I think he really hammered home some points I’ve been trying to get them to understand.  This group of kids is very new and has such potential, but so far they are not catching fire about getting sales going.

He also hit all the key points on including kids in the book and being professional when they are in teacher’s classrooms or taking photos in public.  It was time well spent getting them out of class for about 20 minutes to hear him talk to them.
