Students across the area gather for a prayer at the pole | News
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC)- Students across the country wetnt to school a little early Wednesday to show their faith as part of "See You at the Pole Day."
On this day, public school students take it upon themselves to get to school early to join together for a prayer, and at some private schools, it's a full-out event with music and more.
Last year, students at schools all throughout Chatham County and the Coastal Empire gathered together at their flagpoles for prayer.
In Savannah, Calvary Day School students gathered Wednesday from 7:45 to 8:15 a.m. at the football field's flagpole.
"I love it because it is kids doing it. It is kids leading the prayer. It is kids leading the worship. It is really a student driven example of our freedoms here in America," said Dr. James Taylor, assistant headmaster.
In Statesboro, students at Statesboro High made sure they were up early to show their faith before classes began.
