Parent Engagement

Life-long learning is a basic tenet of Judaism.

In addition to teaching our students, Denver JDS regularly coordinates and presents educational opportunities for parents and community members.

Planting the Seeds: A Series of Growth 

 

How can we use Jewish values and ideas to connect with our children and form deeper parent-child relationships? How can we take knowledge gained in school and turn it into meaningful action at home?

 

Denver Jewish Day School is proud to present Planting the Seeds: A Series of Growth, a parent engagement series that explores fresh new ways in which parents and educators can partner as we educate the whole Jewish child - both in the classroom and beyond. This year-long series offers an excellent opportunity to meet and learn from the expertise of Denver Jewish Day School faculty and staff and to gain deeper insight into the school’s philosophy of learning.
