Middle School Activities
 The OA-BCIG Middle School will participate in the Pennies for Patience Program. Pennies for Patients is a service and philanthropy program that gives students a unique experience making a difference through teamwork—working together to aid hundreds of Iowans in the fight of blood cancers. It is a rewarding opportunity for students to feel like they have made a difference. Students will compete by Falcon Time Teams, and the winners of each grade level 6-8 will win a pizza party! We will begin collecting March 6th through March 24th.
The OA-BCIG Middle School Student Council visited the Care Initiatives Specialty Care Center in Odebolt. Students played BINGO, visited, and shared a snack with the residents. The students, staff, and residents had a great time enjoying one another’s company. In this picture, Eric Sibenaller tries to keep up with the competition.
