Meanwhile here are links to our monthly budget and fundraising status. (Must be a current F7 family logged into your account to access). Also, here's the link to the current quotes/projects for our recreational spaces. We are currently working on the formatting of these to make them more easy to scroll through and understand the sequence of events. However, the specific playground we have asked 4 companies to replicate in order to choose the best vendor and hopefully move forward with in SY21-22 is this one.

Meet our APT Executive Board | 2021-2022 school year
This year's board is full of the hardest working folks you'll ever meet. And they do it all for free! If you see one of them around campus or at an event and you have a question, stop them. They are always thrilled to help!
Your 21-22 APT Executive Board has been hard at work behind the scenes brainstorming ways we can shift our traditional gatherings and events to include necessary safety protocols but also allow us to community-build as we have in years past. This year's board is AMAZING and I think we have the best & brightest minds working on some fun ideas for our families. Keep an eye out for our newsletters/emails/upcoming meetings to stay informed. We may also be polling families for input on our ideas in the next couple weeks so stay tuned! This will be a tremendous shift for our organization and many of us are stepping outside our comfort zone but we're excited and looking forward to a great year!

Registered Volunteer Drive | Ongoing
There's never been a better time to be a registered district volunteer! Mrs. Lott is offering 2 hours of volunteer time for any new registered volunteers. Plus, fingerprinting is currently FREE at the district security office! Visit the Brevard County District Security webpage for more info on the process and to fill out the volunteer application before heading down for fingerprints. The office is located at 2700 Judge Fran Jamieson Way, Melbourne, FL 32940 and is open from 8 am to 4:30 pm and no appointment is required! Save $35 by getting fingerprinted today.
Registered district volunteers are able to help out on-campus, in the classroom & on field trips (when they occur). If you plan to do any volunteering while your child is at Freedom 7 ES, registering with the district is highly recommended. Also, did you know our school-wide volunteer hours and parent participation rate are factored in by the state into our school's rating?! So even after you get your 20 hours, be sure to log any additional hours you earn so our school can shine!
New for 21-22 School Year: If our F7 community reaches 250 active district registered volunteers, our students will earn a school-wide Free Dress Day! We have about 410 students total with approximately 295 families. Many families have 2 registered volunteers so we can DEFINITELY reach this goal.
***Veteran Volunteers: The district no longer supports the old "A/A+ volunteer program so if you were initially approved for volunteering prior to May 2018 and haven't been fingerprinted in a while, there's a good chance you are expired. Call/email Carol Palmer in the front office to verify your expiration dates if still unsure. (If you have never heard of A/A+ volunteers and never volunteered on a district campus prior to May 2018, please ignore this guidance).***
Freedom 7 Spirit Wear | NEW FOR 2021-22
Every year we've had a few parents ask for Freedom 7 shirts for parents/siblings/family members to be able to show their support for our wonderful little beachside school. We've teamed up with a Spirit Wear company who allows families to order shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants and more via direct order which doesn't require us to commit precious funds to holding stock of shirts at the school. Even better, it's made on-demand when you order it and ships to you directly. It's that easy! If you'd like to order items, visit the website. We're planning to keep it open/ongoing and theirs no deadlines. Any questions about the products or your order will go directly to 1st Place Spirit Wear. :) Enjoy families!
***Please Note*** Spirit Wear is meant to provide parents, students and their families an option for showing their support of our school in their off time. Spirit Wear is not a substitute for official school uniforms and may NOT be worn to school in place of official F7 Polos or Uniform T-Shirts. The only acceptable day for students to wear these items to school would be on a Free Dress Day.
School Uniform Vendors
Looking to purchase new uniform polo tops or pants/skirts/shorts? Freedom 7 works with two approved uniform vendors in the area.

Parents are not allowed to send/bring-in food items at this time due to COVID concerns so this is a wonderful solution. If you have any additional questions, email Mr. Devin Smith our café manager at firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll be happy to help. :)
