Students participated in the annual “See You At The Pole” event and met around the stadium’s flag pole on Sept. 22 at 7 a.m. This is a global day of student prayer that brings Christains together to pray for the school community.

This national event sets two dates, allowing students to have a chance to unite in prayer with their fellow peers. The first is the day where around the globe students meet at flagpoles to pray for their schools. Senior Kyle Gross feels like the movement impacts the people who attend the event.

“I just thought it was nice to get a whole bunch of people from different backgrounds and come together,” Gross said. “It pushes me in the right direction and it also helps a lot of other people.”

The National “See You At The Pole” began to spread to other nations through missionaries from the US. Each year approximately 1 million students participate in this movement from all over the world. Senior Olivia Siefker believes it allows her to really bond with other people who also go to our school.

“It’s nice and inspiring to get together with other classmates who want to worship and have a fellowship with our peers,” Siefker said. “It’s very nice to be with other Christians who have the same views as me and who also want the best for our school.”

The second event is The Global Week of Student Prayer from Sept 19 – Sept 25, 2021 where students are able to pray at any time or place all week. Sophomore Tristan Hinckley finds the event was very successful.

“I thought it was a good idea, I liked that we were able to get a bunch of people, and not necessarily people that all knew each other, but people who came together for one good cause,” Hinckley said. “It really brings positivity to us students and shows that no matter what, we’re all here for each other”

Club 121, the group who helped organize the school’s “See You at the Pole” event,  is a place where students can meet together the third Wednesday of each month at 6:50 a.m. in Rm 58.
