ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - All week they've rallied for their school; on Friday night, parents, students, staff and members of the Normandy school community prayed for better days.

Some might see it as sign of desperate times: prayer by candlelight for a school district struggling to regain accreditation and suffering the financial stresses of transferring students. But those who showed up to pray at Normandy High School Friday evening see it as a sign of hope.

Students traveled to Jefferson City Wednesday and marched with their message close to home on Thursday, hoping to pressure decision makers into helping Normandy survive a budget-busting multimillion dollar state mandated transfer program.

Hoping the response will be enough to not only keep Normandy's doors open, but help those inside thrive.

They cap it all off with a community wide rally here tomorrow at noon.
