Mr. Tory Griffin

Hello, my name is Tory Griffin and I am one of the preschool teachers at Ford Elementary in room 108. This is my second year at Ford, but my eighth year in the district. I've been working with children for the past 18 years. When I started preschool 17 years ago, I never turned back! I have a great love and passion for my students and it fills my heart with joy to watch them grow and achieve. It is my goal to create a caring, nurturing, and engaging environment for my students! It is a privilege to be a part of this wonderful team of teachers and staff at Ford Elementary!

Note to parents,

I hope all is well and you are using proper precautions to keep you and your family safe! Here's a few things you need to know during this time: 

MEALS FOR STUDENTS: The District, in partnership with the City and area charters, has developed a meal program ( for families. The City has assured us that we can continue to provide grab-and-go meals at 36 schools in the city. Breakfast and lunch are served Monday through Friday, 8am to noon. The website has a flyer you can download and share in eight languages. The sites are staffed by Southwest Foodservice Excellence.

PACKETS: The district will be providing work packets to be distributed to families at breakfast and lunch sites this coming week. I encourage all of you to get in touch with all your families (as soon as possible) and inform them of the opportunity that is being presented to them.
