Welcome Room 202 TK-Kindergarten Families,

          I am looking forward to teaching your children this year!  I have taught TK, Kindergarten and First grade for the past 30 years in San Diego and I am thrilled to be teaching at E.B. Scripps.  I live in Scripps Ranch myself and am married with 2 sons (Mathew and Trevor) both in college.

          Our classroom is still a work in progress and will be throughout the year.  Once the students arrive we will work together to make it a “home”.  I’m looking forward to meeting the students tomorrow at Orientation and having a great first day of school on Monday.  This is going to be another great year at E.B.S.  You and your child will love Everybody’s Best School !  I’m sure you’ll have questions about the first week of school and the year ahead.  If your questions aren’t answered at Back to School Night, feel free to ask us at any time.  If we didn’t get a chance to chat this evening, you can reach me by phone (858-693-8593 ext. 4202) or by email-mofford@sandi.net. I will check my phone messages and emails before and after school and respond within 24 hours.  I will sometimes be able to check messages throughout the school day.  However, if there is a situation where you need to make sure I get a message by the end of the school day, please leave a message with the front office and they will make sure I get it.

          During the first couple weeks of school, there will be many informative letters coming home regarding our classroom and EBS procedures.  Please check your child’s backpack each day to see if any new material was sent home. For information about school wide activities, please check the school website at www.sandiegounified.org/schools/eb-scripps.  I will also be sending information home by email,  weekly newsletter and possibly a Shutterfly acct as the year progresses.

          The front gate will open at 8:30 Monday morning.  Please walk with your child to the Kindergarten playground and line up in front of our room.  School will start at 8:45 and at this time we will begin enjoying our first day of school together.  Please remember to say good bye and give hugs to your child before sending them into the classroom.  Don’t worry…YOU will be fine and so will they : ) !  The pick-up time for All TK and K students is 12:30 for the FIRST week only.  Then dismissal will be at 3:15 for the K’s.  This year is going to be so much fun!
