Editor To Lead Training At Family Friday
Publisher expands hyperlocal news empire to classroom
Kina, her mommy, and I all had a great morning drawing newspapers with her classmates for Family Friday, where the day’s news mostly revolved around baseball games, Connecticut, and food. After the kids had drawn their front pages, we read them all to the class, shouting extra! extra! with each new headline.
There was, surprisingly, only one top headline about poop, which I decided belonged in the Science section. Somebody’s top headline was about their uncle. Most impressively, one paper was all about how somebody’s family had come to Family Friday to do newspapers and by the way there were going to be healthy snacks; I gave that editor a hug and a kiss, and I told her I’d see her at home.
