The Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Manning High School will observe See You at the Pole at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday at the school, and at lunchtime.
Students will meet to pray at the pole during these specified times.
The initiative is an annual gathering of Christian students of all ages at a school’s flagpole, and scripture-reading and worship may also be involved. The events began in 1990 in response to school-led or sponsored prayer being unconstitutional in the U.S. Students are allowed to pray of their own accord, if they choose.
