Students around the nation met at their school's flagpole Wednesday morning for the annual See You at the Pole.

Local students joined thousands of others at the pole to before many of the students even had breakfast to pray for their school, teachers, community and the nation.

See You at the Pole is a global student prayer, an annual gathering of Christian students of all ages at a flagpole in front of their local school for prayer, scripture-reading and hymn-singing, during the early morning before school starts.

The event occurs every fourth Wednesday of September.
