National See you at the Pole Day ended up with a lot of rain so the event was moved inside to the gym where students and staff gathered to pray and share sentiment.  Held annually on the fourth Wednesday of September, this movement began with a small group of teenagers, and has grown into a national prayer rally.

See You at the Pole™ is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. It is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event. However, parents, churches and families are encouraged to participate but to learn more, and to get involved, visit www.syatp.com

Wednesday, September 26 is National See YOU at the Pole Day.  Last year we had around 100 students, teachers, administrators, and community members gather around the flag pole at each school to pray and show support for our local district as well as area law enforcement.  For those interested in attending, the schedule is as follows (extra parking will be available at the First Baptist Church): 

7:05-7:20 Waynesville Middle / High School
8:15-8:30 Waynesville Elementary School
8:45-9:00 Waynesville Christian School / First Baptist Church
9:15-9:30 Waynesville Police Station / Administration Building 

There's no better way to show our support for our district and community than for hundreds to show up in their orange & black to pray at the pole next week!
