Community Service Hours  | Turn in your forms NOW!
One of the desires of Orangewood Christian Middle School is to produce students who choose to be engaged with the world and who have a desire to help others and thus spread the Gospel. Middle School students (7th and 8th grade) are required to complete 12 service hours per year (6 hours per semester). Students should choose activities that serve the COMMUNITY at large rather than family members. All community service must be completed with a serving organization. Blank Community Service forms can be found on Renweb under "Resource Documents".

Eighth Grade Exams | Thursday and Friday, May 30-31!
