See You At The Pole (SYATP) is a time of prayer held on the fourth Wednesday of September when students meet at their school flagpole, before school, to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. It is student-initiated, student-organized and student-led. www.syatp.com This event was inspired by the initiative of students in one youth group in Burleson, Texas in the early 1990’s and is protected under the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment.

A reminder from Elizabeth Turnball – It was a year ago, Apple Festival weekend I got a concussion. I tripped in my yard ending with a fall close to my house. My head hit the house and I laid there stunned. A neighbor, Teri Vose, came over to see if I was ok and proceeded to help get me up off the ground. A stranger driving by also stopped to help. Tammy Phillips took me to the emergency room where I found I had a minor concussion. Please be aware concussions can happen with any fall or bump to the head, no matter what your age!
Happy Wednesday! I’d love to hear from you!
