Galva Junior-Senior High School students (clockwise, from lower left) Greg Larson, Blayne Robbins, Conner King and Jacob Warner bow their heads as teacher Michl Kearney prays during a “See You at the Pole” gathering around the flag pole outside the school on Sept. 23. The group, members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes group at school, joined students across the U.S. in gathering around flag poles to pray for their schools, students, communities and more.

A small crowd of four Galva Junior-Senior High School students gathered around the flagpole at the school on Sept. 23 to particpate in the national "See You at the Pole" event.

The actual date of "See You at the Pole" was observed nationally on Sept. 24; the Galva gathering was held a day early, before classes Tuesday morning.
