Specials, Technology & Electives
In the Lower School Division, students enjoy “specials” every week; art, music, computers, physical education and library are all part of the regular curriculum at Denver JDS and give our students a variety of outlets to express themselves throughout the day. In P.E., students are introduced to the fundamentals of baseball, football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse and other sports. The Rubenstein Family Library holds more than 16,000 volumes and in the Pluss, Rosenbaum Computer Lab students learn how to input, access, and retrieve information from computers and electronic databases.
In the Upper School Division, students have a personal e-mail address, and teachers have home pages to keep students informed of classroom and homework activities. Using PowerSchool®, our Upper School teachers can track students’ assignments and grades online. Parents can check PowerSchool for their children’s average grades and assignment status at any point throughout the school year. SMARTboardsTM that combine the benefits of a computer-designed presentation with the flexibility and immediacy of a traditional white board have been implemented at both the Lower and Upper School.
