Mrs. Merkle’s Kindergarten Conferences: Mrs. Merkle is in Spokane taking care of her mom who is in the hospital. Since she is out of town, we will need to postpone parent/teacher conferences for her class until next week. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. All other elementary conferences will take place as scheduled.

 

Secondary

11th Grade MBA in  a Day: EMSI will be hosting the Logos Junior class for a full school day on April 3, 2014 for what we are calling “Logos MBA in a Day”. Using our operations at EMSI as an example, we are going to introduce the students to all of the functions that are required to run a business and the various occupations that are involved in each. For instance, a session on product development will explain how businesses create products and introduce students to various vocations in this area such as computer programming, design, and manufacturing. A session on finance will introduce students to all of the ways a business must collect, report, pay taxes on, and distribute money and the various jobs such as accounting, bookkeeping, and tax law that are available in this area. The day will consist of a number of short sessions on topics such as this.

 

The goal of the day is to give the students a better understanding of the business world and, more importantly, to start them thinking about the gifts, interests, and aptitudes they are gifted with and how they might use those to find a vocation they are passionate about. Rod Olps, EMSI’s human resources director, will spend the last section of the day discussing how students should think about their calling, furthering their education, and making key decisions at this stage in life as they grow in Christ and in maturity.

 

This event will be hosted at the EMSI office (409 S Jackson) and EMSI will be providing lunch for the students as part of the event.

 

 

 

Cheers,
