General School Mission

"Parkway Presbyterian Church has a strong desire to be of service to the community and offer its facilities for such use. Therefore the Session (governing body of the Church) highly endorses this school as an outreach arm of this Church. May its use increase and its influence be felt widely through this community.

To nurture the child's experience in developing moral values based on Christian philosophy. This mission will be accomplished by:

emphasizing co-operative living as exemplified by Christ's greatest commandment to "love one another"
• teaching the child to apply these moral values beyond Parkway's environment into the secular world
• conducting activities related to Christian holidays
• incorporating Bible stories and related activities into classroom lessons
• participating in regular visits to the sanctuary for ecumenical songs and story time with the pastor
• participating in mealtime prayers
