East Buchanan Volunteers and Mentors


Dear Community Members,

Welcome to the Mentoring Group! Your participation in the East Buchanan mentoring program is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED and I look forward to a wonderful experience for you and your student!

New this year we are asking every community volunteer to do a quick background check. Our number one goal here at East Buchanan is to ensure the safety of all students and staff. Along with this letter you will find the paperwork that needs to be filled out and returned to the school before mentoring can take place.

As you begin mentoring, please:
*Stop in the elementary office for your mentoring folder
*Sign the log sheet in the folder, noting the time of your arrival
*Proceed to the classroom to meet your student
*Following your 30 minute visit, note on the log sheet where you met with your student (library, lunch room, conference room, etc) plus a bried description of the activities you shared and the time of your departure
*Return your folder to the elementary office

If the teacher has sent schoolwork with your student, please have the student do the assigned work. If no work is assigned, you might choose:
*Arts or crafts
*Practice spelling or math skills
*Play cards or a game
*Discuss the importance of having wholesome friends/role models

I thank you again for taking the time to mentor our students. I look forward to working with each of you and I know the students are eager to get going! If you have questions or concerns please call me at 319-935-3660 or


East Buchanan Community School is starting a new program this year promoting volunteers. We are looking for all persons willing to volunteer in any way. When we find out where, when, and how often you’d like to help we can use that information to match you with the needs of teachers and staff. Whether you have a little or a lot of time, regularly or one-time only – we need you. Together we can make our school district better than ever and strengthen our community spirit at the same time. If you would like to volunteer please print off these forms to return to either East Buchanan Office.

As you begin to volunteer, please:
*Please check into the either office pending on where you will be volunteering. MS/HS will check into the HS office. Volunteers for the elementary will be at the Elementary Office.
*Sign the log sheet in the folder, noting the time of your arrival.
*Proceed or you will be directed where help is needed.
*Following your visit, please note the activities you were involved in and note the time of your departure.

Thank you!!
