Subscribing to the Horn PTO Calendars

If you use a personal electronic calendar and would like have Horn PTO events appear there, you can subscribe to any one (or all!) of the Horn PTO Calendar categories.  Our Horn PTO Calendar that is displayed on this website is backed by public google calendars.  Events from our calendars can be individually exported to your personal electronic calendar, or you can subscribe to any PTO calendar category to have all events appear.  Once you are subscribed to the PTO calendar, when new events are added they will automatically appear on your personal electronic calendar.

We have 4 main calendar categories:

  • ICCSD District Events:  This category has a partial set of events that PTO members found to be of interest from the ICCSD District Calendar
  • Community Events of Interest: This category has Iowa City and surrounding area events that are discovered from Virtual Backpack links.  This category is maintained by PTO members – not all Virtual Backpack events are listed here.
  • Horn PTO and School Events:  This category has ALL Horn PTO events and a subset of Horn School events
  • US National Holidays: This is a copy of the standard US National Holiday calendar.
