School web site
OA will always live on!
For Alumni who are on facebook.
There is a group on facebook "Odebolt-Arthur
will always live on". Presently it has members
from many graduating classes. Alums should check it out to
see if they find long-lost classmates from good ol' O-A.
There is also a group called "Odebolt
Rules" and there are a few "Class of" groups. Not sure if
the links will work. If not, run a search within facebook
Odebolt-Arthur Education Foundation's
An Odebolt-Arthur (OA)
Education Foundation has been formed as an ongoing means to preserve and enhance the OA
school district. This foundation will provide resources for advancements
in the district's academic programs as well as opportunities for our
students. Alumni, parents, staff and community members can make
an impact through annual gifts, major gifts, memorials, planned giving,
and estate planning. (Read more about it!)

and/or family e-mail contacts that attended school here in Odebolt,
we would be very grateful so that we can keep the postage costs to a
minimum. We appreciate any help you can give us; and if you would
