End of year pool party! | TueSDAY, MAy 24TH | 2:30-6 pm
**Wristbands will go on sale starting May 14th**
Back for 2022! Join us for our End of Year Pool Party at Cocoa Beach Aquatic Center! This event is a huge favorite with our students and families & we hope you can join us! Wristbands are required for everyone who enters the pool deck area (to cover the cost of pool/pavilion rental). All are welcome (including non-F7 siblings, etc.).
Buy your wristbands early via your My Account Page (using the link below).
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take your annual swim tests early. The wait to take the test the day of the party will be hours long. There aren't enough lifeguards until after 4 pm to administer the test to individuals as it takes eyes off the rest of the pool. The CBAC is open daily till 7 PM and on Saturdays and the test is free & takes 5 minutes. Call 868-3240 to verify hours. Further details about the test available in the PDF link below.
Please Note: Our pool party occurs rain or shine. if there's lightning in the area & the pool closes temporarily, we party in the pavilion until given the all clear from the lifeguards.
More details available at right or in the sales form on your My Account page.

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.
