HAHIRA, Ga. — Students across the world gathered around flag poles for a morning prayer on Wednesday.

It's called See You At The Pole. Students gathered around Hahira Middle School's flags to take part in the national prayer day.

Hahira has been doing this tradition for six years, but the campaign has been around since 1990.

Students say it means a lot to them because they are able to release stress by praying.

"It's such a good thing for students because it provides a support system for them," said Mitchell Donahoo, 6th grade math teacher and leader of Meet at the Pole. "There's a lot going on in the lives of middle schoolers whether we realize it or not so it provides such a good support system for them to be able to come here and pray and have that spiritual encounter."

See You At The Pole is held every year, usually on the fourth Wednesday of September.
