Our goal as an APT is to offer you, our volunteers, the tools, resources and support you need to plan successful events, while providing you with a positive volunteer experience. Please take the time to review the many resources available to you on our website. We're working hard to add more content in the upcoming weeks so please check back soon!
Freedom 7 Elementary Volunteer Policy
Freedom 7 APT's mission is to enhance academic excellence and the educational experience for our students and school community through volunteerism. By sharing time and knowledge, volunteers strengthen the quality of education received at Freedom 7. All volunteers are expected to adhere to the procedures and guidelines set forth in Freedom 7 Elementary's Volunteer Policy document which is provided at the link below.
District Volunteer Requirements & Raptor Portal Link
All ON-CAMPUS volunteers in the Brevard County School District are required to complete the online volunteer application and applicable following steps before being approved to help-out on campus during school hours. Unfortunately, Freedom 7 APT has no control or insight into BPS's volunteer approval process.

Room Parent handbook
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Room Parent at Freedom 7! This is an important role, one that reflects a desire to be involved. Room parents make a positive difference in the academic and social lives of students as they help create a long-lasting bond between teachers, parents and children. Room parents’ time and effort are truly appreciated by everyone in the school community, especially the staff you are helping. And your children love to see you help out in the classroom! Thank you in advance for your involvement!
Favorite Things Lists!
Each year the APT asks our Staff & Teachers to fill out a form to tell us a little about themselves to share with our student families. It also helps us to spoil them appropriately when the occasion arises.
If you're looking for Favorite Things forms for our wonderful Freedom 7 Teachers and Staff you can find them in this Google Drive Folder linked below. If you know of an out of date form please email us to let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
APT Welcome Kick-off & Volunteer Slides
The APT holds a brief volunteer training session at the Boo-Hoo/Woo-Hoo Breakfast each year to introduce families to a few quick facts about helping out at our school. The slides from our 2019-2020 Boo-Hoo Breakfast are found here.
Looking to keep track of your at-home volunteering? Please use the at-home volunteer log sheet provided at the link below & turn the sheet into your child's teacher for signature and turning into the front office.
