SYATP!

We have a strong group of student leaders at LME this year and today was most definitely a beautiful indication of this observation in action!  The fourth Wednesday of September this year marked the 25th anniversary of a global day of prayer started in 1990 with a group of ten students leading prayer around a school flagpole.   See You At The Pole (SYATP) is simply a student-led prayer rally before school outside the campus flagpole.

SeeYouAtPoleThe student-initiated, student-organized, student-led event at LME this morning lifted up friends, families, educators, schools, community members, and our nation in prayer.  From the beautiful gathering music and sounds of students singing to the power of joining hands in unison throughout the event, hearts and souls were united.  Special thanks to these student leaders, their supportive parents, and to all who chose to participate today…such a powerful way to start the first day of Autumn at LME this year!  🙂

Mrs. Miller will also tell you she is humbled and honored to have her legacy carried forth in the classrooms…
