Surfside continues to be an A school!

We are so very proud of our students, faculty and staff on their hard work and diligence this past school year. Surfside is once again an A school! It takes every member of the team to help our students find their success, and we are grateful for each of them.

Parent Volunteers

Please use the link below on how to register as a school volunteer. This process is required for volunteering on campus, in the classroom, for special events, and for field trips. Additional information will be posted on this site.

If you are volunteering on campus, you MUST have a prior appointment set up with your child's teacher. This process can take a few weeks, so please plan accordingly.

Registration is Open

Registration is open for all students in K-6. As we are finalizing our class rosters, in order to ensure we have proper staffing for the year, we need all registrations as quickly as possible. If you know of anyone moving to our area, or hoping to enroll, please encourage them to come by the office ASAP. Thank you!


It’s time for another Summer Reading Challenge! United Way has partnered with Brevard Public Schools to keep students reading this summer. Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will be coming home with a summer reading pledge sheet given to them in Media indicating how many books they will read this summer, and a reading log postcard in their report card envelope, which they can record the books they read over the summer.

The goal for incoming K-2nd grade students is to read 10 books, and for incoming 3rd-6th graders is to read 8 multi-chapter books. If students complete the challenge and turn their logs in by August 18th, they will get to come to an ice cream party provided by United Way in September or October. We would like all reading logs - regardless if students complete the challenge - to be turned in next school year. If we get 120 reading logs, Mrs. Erenstoft, Mrs. Herman, and Mrs. Oehlmann will kiss a pig next school year! Students can participate in the reading challenge this year by completing the traditional log, by reading on Sora (found on student’s BPS Launchpad), or by submitting their list digitally (at one time, once per student) at

We hope that all students read over the summer! Thank you for your support!
