See you at the pole observed at RV

DSC_0013WARSAW – As the bright morning sun peeked over the top of River View High School on Wednesday morning, Sept. 24, a group of River View students and several faculty joined hands around the flagpole outside the high school to observe See You at the Pole, a nationwide observance held annually at high schools prior to the first bell where kids can express their faith in song and prayer. Cyrus Granger said, “I think that the kids are happy to be out here. For them to come out and see all of the buses go by, and all the kids looking at them, that’s a big step of courage just to come out and to pray in front of all their peers at school. We have a student body of about 600 so it’s great for these kids to come out and show their support.” Garrett Fabian provided guitar accompaniment as the kids sang “Amazing Grace” and other popular Christian hymns. Granger asked the kids to “Pray for our nation, our nation’s leaders, our school and the leaders of our school and also our community.” The students held hands and took turns praying out loud if they chose to. “I’m really proud of all the kids just to come out – it’s a big leap of faith for them. They’re still growing and that’s great,” said Granger.
