Since 1990, when See You At The Pole began, students have gathered at school flag poles to pray for each other, their schools and our country. This year saw more students gather together to pray.
We encouraged our students to get to school early and pray with whoever showed up. I’ve heard reports from all three of our schools (East Clinton, Clinton-Massie and Wilmington) and each school had a prayer time. The East Clinton group had to battle the rain, but had 30+ people meet. Clinton-Massie had a similar number and Wilmington had around a dozen or more.
It’s a big step for some to gather in front of the school and I’m proud of our students and adults who took advantage of the opportunity.
See You At The Pole, while primarily a junior high and high school event, has trickled down to the elementary level. I received this picture from one of our local elementary schools who took part in SYATP. Way to go teachers and students!
