Elementary chapel was very special this morning. The boys and girls enjoyed a special time of praise and worship with Kristin Crosby who led our singing and then introduced our special speaker for the day.

Parents, students and teachers met this morning at the flagpole for a time of prayer for our homes, school, churches and nation. See You at the Pole is a student-led event that began in 1990 with a small group of 10 teenagers in Burleson, Texas. These students were led to meet at the school flagpole and pray for their generation. This year, three million students in 20 countries are expected to participate at this widely observed event.
Thanks to Lydia Sancinito, Vance Carter, Mason Johnson, Alexandra Collins, Caleb Kendrick and Collyer Alderman for leading us this morning. Thanks to all our parents, teachers and students who were able to join us for this special time of prayer.
