In Person Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering doesn't have to mean being in charge. Often, just being able to give an hour once in a while or donating supplies will ensure the success of our activities.

Our fundraising events for the year include:

  • Fall Boosterthon Fun Run - This is our largest fundraiser of the year! We typically raise $18-24,000 for Iron Horse!
  • Trunk or Treat - This is a community event where children can safely trick or treat at decorated vehicles in our school parking lot.
  • Restaurant Nights - We regularly schedule evening events at restaurants within the Parker area. A small portion of the proceeds for the evening are given back to our school.
  • Donuts for Dads/Muffins for Moms - We love to honor our moms and dads! This is a community event where moms and dads are invited to join us for breakfast with their students.
  • Book Fair - We hold two book fairs during the year to support funding for our school's literacy needs. These take place in the fall and spring.
  • School Supply Orders - We offer our community the opportunity to purchase pre-packaged school supplies for a fee. A portion of the purchase price of these kits is returned to the school.
  • Movie Nights - We hold two movie nights for the community each year. Students and families are invited to join us to see age-appropriate movies in a safe environment.
