See You At The Pole - Student Led Prayers - 4th Wednesday Of Every September
"See You At The Pole" On Wed. Sept. 28, 2016 The Annual "See You At The Pole" event in the U.S. happens on the fourth Wednesday of every September at 7 am.
See You at the Pole is a student led, student initiated movement of prayer that revolves around students praying together usually before school at the school’s flagpole. It includes prayers, scripture reading and hymn singing, etc.
Students in elementary schools, middle & junior high schools, high schools, and colleges & universities all over the world are involved. Teachers and Parents often pray in support of the students on campus by gathering nearby or at their places of work or worship, or at city halls.
Background In the United States school sponsored prayers in public schools have been found unconstitutional,but prayers organized by students themselves are allowed and protected by Free Speach Rights. The See You At The Pole event began in 1990 in the U.S. where public schools can not sponsor prayers and some Christians see public schools as hostile to Christian students. It has grown by word of mouth, announcements at youth rallies and churches, the Internet and now occurs internationally. In 2005 over two million students in the U.S. participated, as well as students around the world. Saw You At The Pole Saw You At The Pole is an event that takes place the night after "See You At The Pole." Usually it is Church led and is a worship session with speakers, food, and entertainment.

Student's Rights To Hold "See You At The Pole" While there is no requirement to ask the administration or school board's permission to meet, it is wise and courteous to inform the administration about See You at the Pole™. According to your constitutional rights upheld by Supreme Court precedent, you already have permission to have See You at the Pole™ because it is student-led, before school hours, and outside of any school building. It does not cost the district anything financially for students to meet and pray, so you aren’t “establishing religion with tax money." Read the United States Department of Education's statement on Religious Expression in Public Schools.

The Strongest Way To Promote Is A Personal Invitation. Make a list of friends to personally invite. Text them about any pre-pole or post-pole events, as well as to remind them to be there the morning of See You at the Pole™.
Put Up Posters At Church And At School. Get free publicity and clip-art for creating materials. Posters and other resources are also available to purchase on this site. Don’t cover the campus with flyers or stuff lockers—this may not be cool with the administration and is outside your rights as a student.

Encourage other students to wear See You at the Pole™ T-Shirts to promote the event and on the day of See You at the Pole™. A great idea is to wear them on Wednesdays leading up the morning of See You at the Pole™.
Have See You at the Pole™ Announcements Made At Youth Functions And Special Events. Publicly praying for See You at the Pole™ will help remind everyone of the day and the purpose.
