Volunteer Registration is OPEN!

You may complete the annual online volunteer registration form for the 2020-21 school year now! With rapidly changing Covid-19 circumstances, we will are not sure what volunteering at Prairie Schools will look like when we resume school, however, we will keep you informed of any changes in our volunteer program. You may still complete the annual form now so you are ready to go.
This annual form is required of all Prairie volunteers and only needs to be completed once per school year. Please remember that you must be an approved volunteer to chaperone field trips with your child.
Because the safety of our students, staff, volunteers and visitors, all volunteers are checked against a national sex-offender database and will have a criminal background check performed as part of the registration.
The volunteer registration process will take you to a very short orientation. After you read through the orientation information, click on the link at the bottom of the page to be taken to the registration form to complete and submit. This orientation information is helpful to long-time volunteers and those that are new to volunteering at College Community Schools.

If you are interested in volunteering with our Early Childhood Education Program which includes preschool classrooms, please contact the Early Childhood Center at 319-848-5296.

Global Read Aloud Day

WHAT IS IT?

“The premise is simple; we pick a book to read aloud to our students during a set 6-week period and during that time we try to make as many global connections as possible. Each teacher decides how much time they would like to dedicate and how involved they would like to be. Some people choose to connect with just one class, while others go for as many as possible. The scope and depth of the project is up to you. While there are commonly used such as Skype, Twitter, Padlet,  or Flipgrid, you choose the tools that will make the most sense for you. Teachers get a community of other educators to do a global project with, hopefully inspiring them to continue these connections through the year.”
