See you at the Pole 2019

Pirate Ministries led the "See you at the Pole" rally on Wednesday.  Due to inclement weather, it was moved to the gym.

See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.

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. See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.

Magen Dickerson- 8th grade
 
Magen is a valuable asset to both our band and choir program. She has already shown great dedication in just the first two weeks of school by going beyond expectations in completing her assignments. The improvement she has shown in the past year is a reflection of the dedicated practice time she puts in at home. In addition to being a hard worker, Magen is always helpful and kind in the classroom. I’m lucky I get to have her twice a day!
