CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) -

Charleston Middle School students participated in "See You At The Pole," an annual gathering of Christian students at the flagpole for prayer before school starts.

Around 50 CMS students joined the thousands nationwide. CMS students included Isaiah Gillespie, seventh grade, who said, "It was great to be there with all my friends."

Arturo Biles, seventh grade, explained that they started as one big group prayer, and then broke into smaller groups to pray.

Among the SYATP leaders were Dezhane Lewis and Madelynn Stewart, both eighth graders.

"It was exciting," said Dezhane, and Madelynn followed up: "We don't get to do this everyday."
