NEWPORT -- "See You at the Pole" was started in 1990 and is a global initiative to have students gather around the flagpole at their schools one day per year to unite in prayer for their school, friends, families, churches and communities. United Christian Academy held their "See You at the Pole" event on Sept. 24, with the entire student body participating. Prayers were heard from upper school students, lower school students, and faculty.
