Big picture

Let Me Run Begins Soon: Register Now!

Let Me Run is a running program for 4th and 5th grade boys, but it’s more about the boy than the run. Counteracting the negative pressures society places on boys, the program uses running as the vehicle to inspire, teach, and reach them. Combining exercise with fun activities and lessons, our trained coaches inspire boys to be courageous enough to be themselves, build healthy relationships, and live an active lifestyle.

Registration at Ebinport is now open! The fall season starts on September 18th, meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:40pm - 4:00pm, and ends with a 5k race on Saturday, November 9th. Watch this video to learn more and register at LetMeRun.org. Questions? Email Jimmy Sawczuk at jsawczuk@gmail.com. Scholarships are available!

Parking Notice

Parents and Families - Please do not park on private property and allow your children to walk to school from there (or walk with them to school from there). As we get into the swing of drop-off, the car line goes quicker and quicker so please simply drop your kids off at the school itself. Thank you!

The snacks listed meet SMART Snack guidelines recommended by USDA.

Based upon USDA Nutrition Standards and School Board Policy ADF - District Wellness, the following list of approved snacks are the only allowable snacks for classroom celebrations or parties. No homemade goods are permitted. Snacks must be individually wrapped or in purchased container/package. Valentine’s Day parties are excluded from using the list.
