Ojo Encino site visits:

September 17, 2004
We arrived at Ojo Encino Day School early in the morning, and met up with Mary Nickless. We were very excited about this visit since it was our first trip to Ojo Encino, and it is the schools first year with the program. We took a tour of the grounds, met lots of great students, and were even treated to lunch with the 2nd graders. We made short visits to every classroom, and were able to read or tell a story in almost every class. Ojo Encino has a great group of students.
