How to Volunteer at Horn Elementary

The Horn PTO invites you to become a Horn Volunteer.  There are opportunities to fit everyone’s situation—during school hours, evening hours, weekend hours, or flexible at-home hours; for a single event or recurrent, year-long needs; for organizing and planning events, or just showing up to work a shift.  Horn Elementary appreciates all of its volunteers!

Not sure where to start?  Here’s how to get involved:

Fill out the ICCSD Volunteer Application

Classroom volunteers are organized by the teachers.  These include Room Parents and volunteers to bring snacks during standardized testing (grades 3 and up).  For our younger kids, you can serve as a Buddy Reader or a Guest Reader.  Many teachers and room parents use Sign Up Genius to organize classroom events.  Ask your child’s teacher for more information!

If you plan to volunteer in the classroom or attend a field trip, the ICCSD Volunteer Application form is available from Secretary Lisa Pauley in the Horn office, or by clicking on the link below:

Drop off the completed form at the Horn office, or mail it to:

Volunteer Secretary

Iowa City Community School District

Educational Services Center

1725 N. Dodge St.

Iowa City, IA  52245

It takes two weeks for the district to process the volunteer application.  You will not hear anything back from the district if your application is approved.  After the two week wait, you can start volunteering!

Watch your email for sign up links through Sign Up Genius

Most volunteer opportunities are circulated via email, with links to Sign Up Genius.  When you receive an email from Horn school about volunteer opportunities, click on the Sign Up Genius link in the email to go straight to the Sign Up for that event.  Log in to your account and follow the easy instructions to sign up for the event and time of your choice.
