"Children become adolescents in the blink of an eye, but for their parents, it can feel like an arduous and never-ending journey. The joy and excitement of watching kids take their first steps, go on a first play date, or complete their first chapter book are replaced with anxiety when they bring home their first bad grade, begin to challenge our authority, and (gulp) get behind the wheel of a car. But bridging to the Upper Division at Denver JDS keeps the magic alive as every one of our 6th graders finds a path in this environment so uniquely and purposefully designed to bring out the best version of themselves. It lays the foundation that makes the other, less magical milestones, feel magically easier to manage."
