WARSAW — On May 8, Zimmer Biomet employees will mentor 470 students at Jefferson Elementary through the one-day JA in a Day experience. Hands-on learning will begin at 8:30 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m.
“Warsaw Community Schools believes heavily in inspiring and equipping students to pursue their dreams and enrich the lives of others.” said Kyle Carter, Principal, Jefferson Elementary School. “The lessons learned through the JA in a Day experience will help students to see their current and future roles in the economy. The students and staff of Jefferson Elementary are appreciative of Junior Achievement and the employees of Zimmer Biomet for taking the time to invest in our school and the future.”
Throughout the day, the hands-on JA Elementary Economics activities will introduce core business and economic concepts to students in Kindergarten through sixth grade. They will learn about their roles as individuals, consumers and workers, and they will explore earning, spending and saving money. To expand their knowledge beyond the local economy, the students will also investigate business operations and career opportunities across the state and the nation.
