Students, staff and families from across the district in the Copperas Cove Independent School District gathered around flag poles at their respective schools to sing hymns and pray for each other, the community and the nation.

The annual See You at the Pole event had students across the country praying simultaneously in student-initiated, student-led, student organized events.

It is estimated more than 5 million students participate in the annual event that started in 1990. In the U.S., prayers organized by students themselves are allowed and protected by free speech rights.
