2. Students grow in becoming like Jesus.
a. Daily Worship
     i. Students (PreK-8) gather daily in classrooms for worship and                   prayer
b. Prayer in the classroom
     i. Classes begin with prayer and worship.  Prayer is implemented
        throughout the day (PreK-8)
c. Weekly Chapels
     i. Students gather weekly for chapel where worship through music           and inspirational talks take place.
             1. Friday Family Worship (FFW): The first Friday of every month,                  all students meet in the music room for singing and a pastor                  led worship.
             2. Students Worshipping All Together (SWAT, Grades 5-8) and                      Kids Praise (KP, Preschool-4th):  Students meet in small                            groups on approximately once each month.
            3.  Family Groups:  The 3rd Friday of each month, students                          meet in the gym with their respective “families” for games                      and activities revolving around character traits.
            4. Teacher to Student Mentoring:  Students engage in                                    unplanned and unstructured conversations with teachers                        where additional mentoring takes place.

3. Students learn how to serve the world for Him.
a. Community Service:  “Hood View’s Helping Heart”:  Each quarter we     will focus on a different group to minister to.  

b.  SWAT and KP are responsible for one big outing or project per                quarter for the indicated group.  Family groups will focus on a                combination of the designated group and character traits.

4. Parents and churches have the opportunity to partner with teachers in providing spiritual support and strength to students.
a. Prayer time:  On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, a parent leads out in prayer time in the library for the students and the school.

b. Prayer Walk:  Before school starts, parents, church members and         volunteers will walk the hallways of the school, praying for each             classroom, each seat, each locker, each student, each teacher.

c. Churches Adopt a Classroom:  To promote the connection between       our churches and our classrooms, each church will take on a                  classroom to pray for and vice versa.
