Happy end of school year!

Posted by Kathryn Sloop on Jun 15, 2015 9:31:00 AM

May we sign your yearbook? It's that time of year again, and many, if not all, schools are winding down to summer vacation. We'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our schools for a wonderful school year! We are of course, not bidding adieu to you, as you have access to your account, and us, all the year through. But, we know you work hard all year long for your students, and we want to send you off to summer with warm well-wishes! Consider this our yearbook signature!

April just might be the perfect month. It's filled with sunny days and cool, breezy nights. Even better, you can feel the excitement of summer's fast-approaching days in the air. We're feeling that same excitement, because we're gearing up for one of our busiest yet most exciting seasons. As schools wind down for summer break, we're charging full steam ahead.

Take a look at what we've been up to!

Keeping the books [Employee Spotlight]

Posted by Carrie Chandler on Apr 29, 2015 10:46:30 AM

Sam_Yaworski-718052-editedThere's a vital, but often unseen world in business that most of us can't understand no matter how hard we try. It involves long numbers, decimals, spreadsheets, and complex formulas, and it usually makes my head hurt.

That special and scary world is Finance, and we're lucky enough to have a stellar Finance Team at Magnus Health who keeps us on track and makes sure that all the numbers (quite literally) add up.

One member of that team is Sam Yaworski, our Financial Analyst who manages a lot of nitty gritty tasks like invoices and closing the books. Her day-to-day may not be glamorous to you and me, but for someone who loves spreadsheets and organization, Sam is right at home.

March wrap-up

Posted by Carrie Chandler on Mar 30, 2015 12:37:00 PM

Welcome back! As we all get back into the swing of things after Spring Break, let's take a minute to bask in the awesomeness that was March. We saw dabbles of warm weather, released exciting software updates (have you seen the student photo feature?), and behind the scenes, we're still busy coordinating the 2014-2015 Annual Research Questionnaire of Independent School Health Services. Let's dive in!

At a Glance

  • 29 Magnus employees bowled their hearts out during our Spring Teambuilding Day.
  • We celebrated Pi Day with real, delicious pie and a surprise math test (yikes!).
  • Guest presenter Karen Gregory joined us for her second guest webinar, HIPAA and FERPA in a School Setting.

A pioneer in the world of K-12 health software [Employee Spotlight]

Posted by Carrie Chandler on Mar 12, 2015 2:22:00 PM

Allen-Cobb-landing-pageYou've probably heard us talk about Magnus Health's Chief Product Officer, Allen Cobb, before. In fact, you may have even met Allen in person. You can easily find him presenting the Annual Report at conferences, leading sessions at Magnus Academy, or visiting with one of our integration partners. 

Allen wears all sorts of hats at Magnus, but one thing is for sure: He's an innovative guy with a talent for creating big ideas. But don't let his go-getter attitude fool you. Allen also likes to have fun, and you can usually find him cracking dad jokes or showing off his 1980's dance moves in between meetings.

But before we get into that, let's start at the beginning.

February wrap-up

Posted by Carrie Chandler on Feb 27, 2015 11:54:39 AM

Ah, February. Sandwiched between holidays and springtime, it can be a bit dreary. But we've been keeping ourselves busy and creating our own cheer by pushing out new software updates, recording client training videos, and hosting guest expert webinars. And if that wasn't enough, we also found time to relax and celebrate Valentine's day with each other by bringing in heart-healthy snacks named after famous couples (Elvis and Priscilla's peanut butter and banana graham crackers was a personal favorite). We had fun during February, and we sure hope you did, too.

Lessons learned from the 2015 Academy Awards

Posted by Kathryn Sloop on Feb 23, 2015 1:05:00 PM

I'm not going to pretend that The Oscars has an enormous amount in common with school health. But I will argue, there are lessons to be learned and/or reiterated from the glamorous affair - and none of them are about fashion.
